The last time an engine ran on the line through this area was between
1880 and 1885 with the rails being taken up from a mile south of Troedyrhiw
to Mount Pleasant about the same date. Between Kings Hill and Merthyr Vale
the tramroad crossed the Merthyr - Cardiff road three times and the rails
were taken up about 1900. For safety reasons the new cycle path only crosses
the Merthyr – Cardiff road once.
