INSPECTION OF THE NEW ABERTHAW RAILWAY AND LIME WORKS. On Wednesday the directors of the new Aber- thaw Railway Company, accompanied by the directors of the Aberthaw Pebble-Lime Company and Mr. A. Beasley (general manager Taff Vale Railway Company), Mr. Brewer (en- gineer to the Taff Vale Railway Com- pany), Mr. 0. H. Jones (Fonmon Castle), Mr. W. H., Mathias (contractor of the railway), Mr. James Hurman, Mr. Walter Scott, solicitor (secretary to the railway company), Mr. Gaskell, and Mr. Kilby (manager of the lime works), in- spected the railway and lime works. They were conveyed from Cowbridge by a special train, Mr. Mathias having supplied the engine and Mr. Beasley the carriage. The party having travelled along the line, they disembarked at Aberthaw and proceeded over the works. Subsequently, several important matters were discussed, and it was decided to construct a jetty across the river with a view of affording holiday seekers easy access to The Leys. It is anticipated that the new railway will be open for passenger traffic within the course of a month or so. This enter- prise must necessarily result in the devolopement of the locality, and give an impetus to the opera- tions of the well-known Pebble-Lime Works.
