To any Rhymney Railway experts lurking out there, where were the Rhymney Railway Carriage Sheds located?

They were not "sheds" as such since I recall the carriages being stabled in uncovered sidings to the east of the MPD sheds. As an aside they were also a favourite location for "courting couples". However, the effort of accessing a compartment was far from easy. I will leave it to your imagination. Of course, I was told of the latter by a third party!!!!!!!

I can imagine this would work for diagrams beginning at the top of the valley but for those beginning at Parade? I would have thought they would have needed something closer to Cardiff as well.
