This station represents the junction that would have taken place between the Moel Siabod Tramway and the North Wales Narrow Gauge Railway's proposed line from Beddgelert to Betwyscoed.
Had the latter ever been built, the quarry had hoped to make a direct connection with the new line.
Connection with the North Wales Narrow Gauge Railway would undoubtedly have brought about an increase in production at the quarry and an improvement in the tramway. For the purposes of this layout we have assumed this to be the case.
The station building is typical of the North Wales Narrow Gauge Railway as is the signal box. There is a carriage siding for terminating passenger trains, either quarryman's or excursion, and a small yard for local freight. The quarry branch comes in from the left and close by is a small loco shed provided by the quarry for its own locomotives.
A variety of trains can be seen from a number of railways although the Festiniog Railway predominates.
