The railway was financially restructured. While most other narrow-gauge systems in North America were closing around this time, the WP&YR remained open. In 1959, the first dividend to stockholders was paid, at 10 cents per share. The railroad began dieselizing in the mid to late 1950s, one of the few North American narrow-gauge railroads to do so.

(Redirected from NWNGR)
In its time also known unofficially as the North Wales Narrow Gauge Railway, which however in this wiki denotes something else.

This was a precursor to the Welsh Highland Railway.

Lines[edit source]

Formed to build a major network of narrow gauge railways throughout the North Wales mountains, the NWNGR built only the line from Dinas Junction to the quarries above Bryngwyn, with a branch to Rhyd Ddu (the original name for the station later known as Snowdon or South Snowdon). After delays, the lines opened, in stages over 4 years from 1877. Originally the Bryngwyn line was the main line. However, within a short space of time the roles of the lines were reversed, and the line to Rhyd Ddu became the main line.

Rolling stock[edit source]

See Locomotives used on the original WHR or its constituents, WHR Carriages (Pre Preservation) and WHR Wagons. Some of the rolling stock was leased from the Moel Tryfan Rolling Stock Co. Ltd. because the company could not afford both to purchase it and build the line.

Finances[edit source]

Due to financial difficulties, a receiver was appointed nearly as soon as it opened. The Bryngwyn line closed to passengers in 1913, and was eventually followed by the closure of the rest to passengers in 1916; goods traffic was carried on a 'as required' basis until 1922.

Planned extensions[edit source]

Various extensions were planned. The line from Dinas Junction to Rhyd Ddu was built and operated, but this was just a small part of the grand scheme for a network of narrow-gauge railways spanning much of north Wales. A further part of the scheme was the North Wales Narrow Gauge Railways (General Undertaking) which planned a route from Porthmadog to Beddgelert, where it would meet the Rhyd Ddu-Beddgelert extension. From there the line would travel via Capel Curig to Betws-y-Coed. A further branch would have extended the line from Betws-y-Coed to Cerrig-y-Drudion where the railway would meet the planned Ruthin and Cerrig-y-Drudion Railway. An Act of Parliament in 1885 authorised an extension northwards to Caernarfon and a Light Railway Order of 1900 authorised an extension southwards to Beddgelert.

The first were in 1885 when an extension to Caernarfon and a zig-zag line to replace the Bryngwyn incline were proposed. Neither was built but the Caernarfon part was resurrected again between 1904 & 1908 and again in 1922, as part of the new WHR. However, not until 1997 did the narrow gauge reach Caernarfon.

In 1897 approval was given for an extension to Beddgelert. This was eventually started around 1904, but probably by then as part of the Portmadoc, Beddgelert and South Snowdon Railway with changes on the approach to Beddgelert.

The General Undertaking was authorised by Act of Parliament in 1872 but officially abandoned in 1876. The section from Porthmadog to Beddgelert was eventually completed by the Welsh Highland Railway as part of its construction, and utilised parts of the Croesor Tramway and the aborted Portmadoc, Beddgelert and South Snowdon Railway (PBSSR) works.

Takeover by Henry Joseph Jack and the Aluminium Corporation[edit source]

With the company being in the hands of the receiver for much of its existence, and the loss of much trade that it had, it became prey for the Dolgarrog People, and the company was taken over in April 1920. Science fair documentsmr. slack's 3rd grade language arts.

Officials[edit source]

No complete list of officials exist, those known are recorded here.

  • Jeffrey de Winton (member of the NWNGR Provisional Committee)[1]
  • Sir Llewelyn Turner, Chairman of the NWNGR company from 1872 until at least 1887.[2][3]
  • Henry Watts, Secretary of the NWNGR company from 1872 until at least 1876.[4]
  • R H Livesey General Manager around mid 1887 at least[5]
