Penrhyn Quarry workshops
The building at Coed y Parc at the former meeting point between the "main line" of the 2' gauge railway to Porth Penrhyn and the internal quarry railway system.. By the time this picture was taken in 1973 the railway had long since been lifted however the buildings remained. Some of the locomotives and rolling stock has however survived including Linda and SH5837 : Blanche at Boston Lodge both of which can still be seen in operation on the Ffestiniog Railway.
