Bryn y Mawr

00, London Midland and Scottish Railway, 12 f@ 3 foot



There were many proposals to build railways onto the Halkyn Plateau to serve the mines and quarries post 1900  promoters framed the proposals to use the Light Railway Acts to save money. A group planned to build a 10 miles long railway from Hollywell to Pen-yr-Orsedd via Milwr, Bryn y Mawr, Halkyn, Pant-y-gof and Rhosesmor. The First World intervened, the plan was put on hold, after the war it was realised  that developments in motor transport had destroyed the plans viability. History has been twisted with the line coming to fruition, becoming part of the London Midland and Scottish Railway in 1923, and regaining its independence in the 1960’s.
The layout can exhibited with late 1930’s London Midland and Scottish Railway or early 1970’s stock a combination of light and heritage railway.
