Nantlle Tramway

Post by RichardCoulthurst » Thu Jul 16, 2015 9:37 am

Please take five minutes to look at this archive film from the BFI on the Nantlle Tramway in North Wales in 1962.

The motive power is superb. Can anyone explain the symbol on the wagons?

According to James Boyd's NG Railways in North Caerns, the symbols dated from pre-literacy days in these parts, and denoted the wagons' owners.
