Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dduallt station is a passenger station on the narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway in northwest Wales, which was built in 1836 to carry dressed slate from Blaenau Ffestiniog to Porthmadog for export by sea. Dduallt is at a height of 540 feet and a distance of just over 9.5 miles from Porthmadog. When steam traction was introduced on the railway in 1863, a slate water tank was established near Dduallt farm about 0.5 miles below the present station and all up trains stopped for water. Regular use of this facility probably ceased about 1872 with the opening of Tan-y-Bwlch station. There has never been road access to Dduallt station, which can only be reached by public footpaths.show more
