The history of these two principal branches interlocked and overlapped at various times. Both lines were originally basic mineral branch lines focusing on the exchange sidings at Stormstown Junction, but were later to see their orientation changed in favour of the important traffic centre of Pontypridd at the hub of the TVR system. Both lines also played an important part in the steam railcar revolution that gripped the TVR in the decade after 1903. Finally, in the retrenchment of later years both lines ended their days by reverting to short mineral branches off the former TVR main line, with Stormstown Junction regaining its former pre-eminence.
