Nantlle Railway

This line is partly re-opened. The original line was a narrow guage line which ran from quarries at Nattle to the quayside below Caernarfon castle. This was converted to standard gauge by the Carnarvonshire Railway which continued the line on south to Afon Wen. The lines were closed in the 1960s. The present re-instated line is narrow gauge and the plan is to extend as far as Porthmadog along the former routes of the North Wales Narrow Gauge Railway, Portmadoc, Beddgelert and South Snowdon Railway and the Croesor Tramway.
