Description
The area in this photo was crossed by a number of old tramways, narrow gauge lines and standard gauge sidings. The only one remaining is the Blaenau Ffestiniog - Llandudno passenger line seen in the centre of the photo. The tunnel visible is the 2nd longest in the UK, well over 2 miles in length.


At the top of the photo, you can see the buildings of Llechwedd Slate Caverns - a major tourist attraction. You can get on a little train and travel through the undergound caverns, some of which are massive.

  I see a bridge for an old (or maybe 2) track in bottomright, I think the other bank might have carried some tracks. Just above the existing tracks is a bank for another railway. The path (now green) might have housed a track once. Also, the ledge over the tunnel might have had a track on it, though I doubt that.

  According to my old plan of the site, there would have been a total of 10 lines in this photo (including small lengths of siding).
