Coke, Esq., Neath. THIS line is the natural result of opening out, by an important main trunk like the South Wales Railway, a country rich in minerals, with a large and rapidly increasing population, both of which have hitherto been but imperfectly supplied with the means of transit. The numerous mines, collieries, iron, copper, tin plate, fire brick, chemical, and other works, already in operation and in course of being opened, in the interior of South Wales, especially in the country through which this line will pass, and which are now being extensively multiplied there, seek a more speedy and ready access to the main line than existing modes supply, and hence the necessity for affording to the important valley between Neath and Merthyr-Tydvil the most perfect means of communication, not only with the South Wales Railway, but with the ports of Neath and Swansea, the natural and legitimate outlets for the produce of the valley whence the supplies of flour and other provisions from Ireland can be cheaply and expeditiously conveyed into the heart of the country. The proposed line will commence at Neath by a junc- tion with the South Wales Railway, will continue up the Valley to near Pont Walby, thence to Merthyr-Tydvil, passing within a short distance of the extensive iron works lying in that district. The advantage of the natural fall of country, being from Merthyr to Neath, calls forth a strong opinion in the fol- lowing extract from the Report of the Board of Trade on Railways in South Wales :—'< By the proposed line (the South Wales), the principal towns and commercial em- poriums, which are situated along the coast at the bottom of the valleys, are placed upon the main line, to which the traffic from the interior will descend a consideration which is very important, when we recollect that a great part of this traffic will consist of heavy minerals." The Vale of Neath intersects the great coal and iron fields of South Wales, and possesses anthracite, as well as bituminous coal, in great abundance. In addition to the Collieries and Iron Works, there are also Tin Works adjoining the proposed line, and valuable Timber, to the extent of 4,000 acres. It is unnecessary to give a detailed estimate of the pro- bable revenue that will arise from the Vale of Neath Railway it is sufficient to say, that in the districts be- tween and through which it will pass, the population numbers above 80,000, depending chiefly on the supplies now transmitted to the interior through Swansea and Neath that the intercourse between the above towns is such as to bear ont a most favourable estimate of passen- ger traffic; and that 200,000 tons of coal, exclusive of other minerals, are exported annually from the Vale of Neath, finding a ready market in France, Ireland, Somer- setshire, Devonshire, Cornwall, London, and other places. From these mere outlines it is evident that the increased facility of transit which this Railway will afford over the present modes of conveyance, connected as it wi!l be with Swansea and Briton Ferry (the port of Neath) by means of the South Wales Railway, will produce a corresponding increase of production and traffic. Under the latter head, as regards passengers, may be taken into consideration the large numbers that resort to Swansea from the interior for sea bathing, and the strikingly picturesque and richly varied beauties of the Vale of Neath, with its famed waterfalls, will be a source of never-failing attraction to tourists and parties of pleasure. The most favourable opinion is entertained of the Vale of Neath Railway by almost all the landed proprietors along the line, the majority of whom are members of the Provisional Committee, the lessees of collieries, and par- ties engaged in shipping and its importance as a profit- able investment may be judged from the fact that the Neath Canal, which now traverses only half the distance of the proposed line, and affords, evenJo that limited extent, but imperfect accommodation, has for many years paid a large dividend to the proprietary, and the original £ 1 00 shares are now marketable at JE340. Prospectuses may be had, and applications for shares may be addressed, in the form annexed, to the Secretary, at the offices of the Company, 449, West Strand, London, and to the Solicitors in London, or Neath. In the allotment of the shares of the company, a prefe- rence will be given to parties locally interested, and to the proprietors of shares in the South Wales Railway Company. The usual power will be taken by the act, to allow interest at 4 per cent. per annum, on the amount 01 subscriptions paid up and no subscriber will be an- swerable for more than the amount of his deposit of E I 10s. per share, until the act is obtained, and then not beyond the amount of his subscription.
