Horses[edit]

Should mention briefly when changeover from horses to locomotives took place. FarleyBrook (talk) 03:38, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

England Engines#List of the England locomotives says 1863. FarleyBrook (talk) 03:44, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

(QNNA) Did main line horse haulage finish in 1863 as well? FarleyBrook (talk) 03:44, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Exemplar[edit]

The claim that the Festiniog Railway was a World exemplar should be expanded here or in a separate article. FarleyBrook (talk) 05:14, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Origin of name[edit]

  • The name Ffestiniog looks like it came down the centuries from old Common Celtic Festiniakon (Latin Festiniacum), meaning "Land or place owned by a man named Festinus or Festinius". Anthony Appleyard (talk) 12:28, 1 December 2017 (UTC)
