Hi David,

Did you mean: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyfarthfa_Ironworks

Unfortunately, I couldn't see reference to Richard Trevithick's Engine, but a Google search delivers the goods, such as: https://museum.wales/articles/2008-12-15/Richard-Trevithicks-steam-locomotive/

All the best,

Bill

David, I remember driving down the Rhondda from the Brecon Beacons with my Dad in the 50's and what a sight it was. 

Much cleaner nowadays but I'm sure it was a sad time indeed when the world famous Welsh "steam coal" and equally celebrated Welsh steel hit the buffers.

It tore the heart out of those valley communities.  :sad:
