taken 13 years ago, near to Nant Peris, Gwynedd, Great Britain

C6 'Tanc' Incline
C6 'Tanc' Incline
The two 'tanc' or 'trwnc' inclines C6, linking Ponc Aifft and Ponc Australia, and C7, linking Ponc Twllmwg and Ponc Aifft, are unique. Here, unlike other inclines where the drum is located in a drum house, the drum is positioned below the trackway bed and is operated from a cabin (the chimney of that of C6 is visible in this photo at the top of the incline) using a device similar to that of a ship's wheel.
