50049 Pontlottyn 4 December 2005

A brief burst of winter sunshine illuminates 50049 Defiance, as it approaches Pontlottyn on 4 December 2005 with the 1Z32 10:56 Cardiff Central to Rhymney. This was one of a number of special trains run to mark the end of loco haulage on the line. The houses of the former colliery village of Abertysswg can be seen in the background.
