On 28th February 2002, Valley Lines operated a special train over the Vale of Glamorgan and Ebbw Vale lines, to view the new station sites, the infrastructure etc.
In this photograph, by Bill Price, the special is shown at Llantwit Major. The platforms of the old station (closed in 1964) can be seen; they will be built out to the existing tracks (the old station having had four tracks, with the platforms on loop lines). The reinstated platforms will be long enough for 4-car trains.
