SN5881 : Aberystwyth Harbour Quay

taken 10 years ago, near to Aberystwyth, Ceredigion/Sir Ceredigion, Great Britain

Aberystwyth Harbour Quay
Aberystwyth Harbour Quay
The track of the Vale of Rheidol harbour branch ran along the quay here until it closed in the 1920's through lack of traffic. Timber and silver-lead ore were transshipped to quayside ships from the railway wagons. There has never been any indication of a run round loop anywhere on the branch so the wagons would need to have been propelled along the short line.
