Hi guy

The image is a close up of a train standing in the bay at the Phllweli end of Barmouth station and I wondered if I am right in saying the track has GWR steel sleepers?

Regards

Mike

Hi Mike.
According to Andrew Dow's book, The Railway, the GWR purchased over half a million steel sleepers from GKN with the chairs cast on in the late 1920s for experimental use. It is possible the picture shows some of these.
Regards
Tony.
