The Allt Ddu Locomotive trackbed from the Horse drawn trackbed
The main track to Dinorwig Quarry from Allt Ddu Quarry follows the old horse drawn tramway bed, but alongside it are the remains of the 1902 built steam line. The Dinorwig Quarry archive shows that the annual cost of operating the horse tramway was 325 and that the estimated cost based on transporting 2,300 tons of slate per month by loco would be only 130. The total cost of building the 2,000 yard line was estimated at 1,750, less than 1 per linear yard.
