The line of the former trackbed north of the old Moelwyn tunnel can be clearly seen when the water in Llyn Ystradau is not too high.
There was formerly a cottage by the tunnel entrance (sometimes called "Tunnel Cottage" but officially "Moelwyn Cottage") and at this point the main line was also joined by a (still visible) branch from Brookes' Quarry, cut into Moel Ystradau, and a branch from one of the metal mines on the lower slopes of Moelwyn Mawr.
