On 17 December 1902 a fatal accident occurred when a train from Tredegar to Nantybwch with 9 loaded coal wagons and a brake van was stopped on the incline of 1 in 42 near Nantybwch. The driver uncoupled the engine for adjustments; on recoupling he backed the engine on to the wagons, setting them in motion back down the hill until they reached Tredegar, about 1½ miles distant, where a disastrous collision occurred.
The route has been reused by the modern A4048 road;
