Further Information

Dinorwig Quarry’s Padarn Railway started operating in March 1843 with horse-drawn wagons transporting slate from Gilfach Ddu (now the site of the National Slate Museum) to Penscoins. An incline then took the slate from the terminus at Penscoins down to the quay at Felinheli.

The railway closed in 1961. Part of its route was re-opened in 1971 as the narrow-gauge Llanberis Lake Railway. An extension to this taking the line into Llanberis village was opened in 2003.
