- When the GWR backed Bala to Ffestiniog Railway was promoted in the early 1870s a railway infrastructure serving mines and quarries of North Wales had already been established.
- The Bala and Ffestiniog Railway, on its journey through Merionethshire, from the ancient and delightful market town of Bala reached a summit of 1278 ft above sea level east of Arenig, reputedly one of the bleakest stations anywhere on the Great Western network.
- It then traversed wild moorland to cross high above the Afon Prysor on a fine, curved stone viaduct and by way of a ledge cut high in the mountainside, made its way through wild and spectacular terrainto reach its goal in the heart of the region's slate mining area.
