Ah must be a crane right? Right! For a nuclear flask? So we must be at Trawsfynydd nuclear P.S?

I agree with Sam. This is where the power stn sdgs were but the Stn is I believe Maentwrog Road as the village of Trawsfynydd was at the other end of the lake which flooded the line when created and was the next stn on the B.F.-Bala Branch. From memory the A470 is just over to the LHS.

Sorry, Bob - but this frame is not at Maentwrog Road. There was a halt at Trawsfynydd Lake, north end, near the power station, and this is where the flask transfer siding was. Maentwrog Road station was about a mile further north, and is seen on the next frame. The station locations can be seen on the 1953 OS map - http://www.npemap.org.uk/tiles/map.html#269,339,1 Trawsfynydd station was on the hillside above the village at the south end of the lake. The line was flooded by the new reservoir further east between Arenig and Frongoch, near Bala.

Yes, the power station loading point was right alongside Trawsfynydd Lake Halt.
