A stretch of line rarely used in the last couple of years is the Ogmore Vale Extension (OVE) linking Margam yard with Tondu (on the Bridgend to Maesteg branch) but on 2nd 4th August 2014 'The Taffy Tug 2' operated by Pathfinder Tours used this link on the Baglan Bay to Maesteg section of their tour. Seen crossing a minor road on the OVE in a hamlet named Cwm Ffos is DBS Class 60 numbered 60040 â??The Territorial Army Centenary.â?? The metal crossing gates are a relatively recent addition as for a number of years the crossing was controlled by automatic lights, but local youths were prone to activate the lights as a result of trespassing; the gates are more secure and are padlocked when not in use.
