Miltary trains to Trawsfynydd

Postby NCB » Wed Jul 27, 2016 5:59 pm

I've often wondered about the operations of rail traffic to the military station at Trawsfynnyd, having seen very little in print. I presume there were special trains, both passenger and freight. I read some time ago that the passenger trains were pulled by a miscellany of locomotives, including GW Moguls and Manors. More recently I came across a claim that the Bala to Trawsfynydd section used the normal locomotives, mainly panniers, used in normal service on that bit. Presumably if say a Manor was used then it ran tender first in one direction, as the nearest means of turning it would have been some way away.

Any ideas? Cwm Prysor station could make a nice model, particularly if it had the odd military special running through it!
