The disused railway signal box at Pontypridd is a Grade II listed building, and was once part of Pontypridd Junction. It played a part in the Hopkinstown Railway Disaster of 1911 (see also Wikipedia), when a stationary northbound coal train failed to comply with Rule 55 and ended up in collision with a southbound passenger train. Eleven people lost their lives.
Today, the signal box stands abandoned, unused. I’ve been unable to find any online reference for when the signal box closed. If you know, please leave a comment below.
