143616 Gilfach 24 April 2004

143616 passes Gilfach, as it descends the Rhymney Valley on 24 April 2004 with the 10:42 Bargoed to Penarth Arriva Trains Wales service. Even without the coal mining landscape of yesteryear, this is still very typically a South Wales scene, with the rows of terraced houses climbing up the valley.
