Nantmoor to Hafod-y-Llyn

(Nantmoor Bank)

Most of this section in an a 1:40 gradient

Just before the road bridge, and easy access from the road, this section was used for storage of rail, before a start was made of re-laying the WHR in Porthmadog. The last rail was taken from here in 1991.

Going on towards Hafod-y-Lynn.

The sharp gradients of the Nantmoor Bank give way here to from 1:40 to a mere 1:67

Finally to the bottom of Nantmoor bank and back to level ground.

Afon Nantmoor

Another one of the WHR's standard girder bridges, this time with a footpath over the top.

Afon Dylif

Yet another WHR Standard bridge, however, this one proves a little tricky to get over.

Between Afon Dylif and Croesor Junction

Croesor Junction

An end to the WHR proper, and onto the former Croesor Tramway


1940's (WHR Coll.)
