  Excellent! Could you email me a full-size copy of this SC? I'm a 'bit' of a collector.

  what were the 2 short narrow-gauge-lines at the extreme top? What's written next to it?

  Sonofabitch: I will mail you a copy.

IIVQ: That's the lines/station for the Ffestiniog Narrow Gauge Railway. The plan is misleading as the lines do actually continue in both directions! A couple of Railway Companies laid lines in Blaenau, hoping to grab a share of the slate trade. The Ffestiniog was used to transport the finished slate down to the Harbour at Porthmadog. It's still open today (for tourist use):
