Third shot of West Mon 1, HWO590, a Foden PVSC6, new in 1948, was rebodied in 1953 with a Willowbrook B31F body. It was fitted with sprag gear to prevent run back on the Bargoed Hill route which had a section of 1 in 4.
It is seen here negotiating the extremely tight right angle turn under the railway bridge on the lower part of the hill.
