A trwnc incline
The external tramway was linked to the rest of the quarry by a trwnc incline. A trwnc incline was one where the trucks were conveyed on platforms (or "tank") down the incline so as to keep them horizontal. Another name for such an incline is a table incline. The following link shows a restored trwnc incline at the Vivian Quarry, Llanberis.
