End of The Line (1)
Class 33, 33019 stands on the truncated Aberbeeg - Brynmawr line on the outskirts of Blaina close to Rose Heyworth Colliery. The loco was on the Welsh Washery Wanderer railtour operated by Hertfordshire Railtours. The railtour visited on 28th September 1985 with closure of the colliery due to take place on October 9th, 1985. The railway line would close soon after and the trackbed is now used by the A467 road north of Abertillery.
