FROM THEHEHBERT TO SWANSEA. Improved ailway Facilities sed for A DEPUTATION WAITS UPON THE MANAGEMENT. Last week District Councillor Morgan Llew- elyn and Mr David Williams (members of the Ystradyfodwg School Board, Treherbert, waiteJ on the manager of the Rhondda and Swansea Bay Railway, requesting that "entleman to im- prove the railway facilities from the Rhondda. At present the last train leaving Treherbert in the evening goes at 7.15, which is rather early for commercial business ipoople. It was re- quested by the deputation that a train should leave Treherbert at 10.30 p.m. for Swansea (in connection with the 10 p.m. train from Ponty- pridd), calling at all intermediate stations. They also requested that tickets at a faro and a quarter be issued from Cymnier, Abergwynfi. Caerau, etc., to Treherbert, thus giving to Treherbert the same privileges as a.t present enjoyed by Aberavon, Neath, and Swan- sea. Should this be granted, Treherbert, and the upper part of the Valley will regain its commercial prosperity. We are happy to 6tatcr that Mr David, the manager, has promised to bring the matter before his directors, and will do everything in his power to induce them to* give the proposals a fair test. These gentlemen have also come to an ar- rangement with the Rhondda and Swansea Bay Railway, that a special train shall leave Tre- herbert for Swansea at the close of the dog show, to be held on Thursday, August 19th. Passengers to Treherbert will be able to travel at a reduced rate on that day.
