Conifer plantation bordering the old Prince of Wales Quarry tramway
Conifer plantation bordering the old Prince of Wales Quarry tramway
This tramway created in 1875 joins the old Gorseddau trackbed of 1857 a little south of this point. The defunct Gorseddau line was relaid from the junction to Porthmadog in 2 foot gauge to match the Prince of Wales line. Previously the Gorseddau had had a 3 ft gauge. Hailed in the prospectus as probably Britain's most profitable railway, it finished up with men pushing individual trucks the whole way to Porthmadog.
