Ffestiniog Railway at Tan-y-Blwch

The Ffestiniog Railway is a world-famous attraction in North Wales. It has operated since the 1830s as a means of transporting slate from the quarries in Blaenau Ffestiniog down to the sea at Port Madog for onward transportation by ship. At first, it was illegal to carry passengers but that changed in 1867 and now, of course, it is a tourist railway and a not-to-be-missed experience. This photograph was probably taken around 1900 and shows a mix of carriages and slate trucks.
