Rheilffordd Lofa Garn Goch Mineral Railway
Cyn reilfordd a gystylltai Glofeydd Garn Goch a Gorsaf Reilffordd Tregwyr. Yn wreiddiol adeiladwyd tramffordd 1,200 llath er cysylltu Lofa Cae Newydd (suddwyd oddeutu 1870) a Rheilffordd y Great Western. Yna, oddeutu 1900 ymestynwyd y rheilffordd i gysylltu a Glofeydd Garn Goch Rhif 1,2 & 3 ar Fynydd Carn Goch. Caewyd Garn Goch Rhif 3, yr olaf ohonynt i gynhyrchu glo, yn 1965 a chodwyd y traciau yn fuan wedyn. Rhychwanta'r bont Afon Llan. Mae rhan fwyaf o'r lein bellach yn llwybr cyhoeddus

A dismantled railway which formerly linked Garn Goch Collieries with Gowerton Station. Originally, a 1,200 yard tramline was constructed to link Cae Newydd Colliery (sunk c1870) with the Great Western Railway. Later, circa 1900, the line was extended to link up with Garn Goch No 1, 2, & 3 Collieries on Mynydd Carn Goch. When the last of the collieries, Garn Goch No 3, closed in 1965 the railway also ceased to operate and the track removed. The bridge in the foreground spans the River Llan. Most of the former line is now a public footpath.
