MAP OF THE AMMAN AND TOWY VALLEYS
There was once an extensive rail netwrok serving the Towy, Amman, Loughor and Swansea valleys, as this schematic map shows. Here you can see the timeline for the opening of the railways followed by the dates the lines were closed.
Now, only the railway lines to Swansea and Llanelli still carry passengers, while only a coal service now runs up the Amman valley to the open cast site at Tairgwaith.
