Stations along the FR part of the line[edit]

Note that throughout this wiki the names Portmadoc and Porthmadog have been variously used. The first being the English name whilst the second being the Welsh, and currently, offical title. In older documentation there has been other spellings, including Portmadock, and Port Madoc

N.B. BEWARE Certain placenames are used frequently in the area. One example being Bont Newydd. This is a place referred in Boyd, said to be located near to Rhiw Plas/Minffordd Cemetery. It also refers in the form Bontnewydd to a village, and request halt on the Welsh Highland - some 15 miles northwest..

Main stations are in larger type. Halts and request stops are normal sized. Former stations and halts are indented. For other places of interest see the locations list. See other notes at bottom of page

There are additional, related maps on the "Bing" site:
1) for the operating Railway used for above locations
2) for the Deviation details
3) for old line courses, though noticeably the lines around Port Harbour are still missing.
