In the early 1840s several railway lines were already being planned and built in North Wales. The opening up of coal and slate mines and the addition of steel, brick, iron, tin and lime works across the region gave the impetus for many schemes. The railway age had arrived! Sadly, this prosperity was not to last and by the turn of the century lines began to close, first to passengers and then to freight. Modern photographs accompany those taken when the railways were open and flourishing.
