Brymbo Ironworks Iron Railway (United Kingdom)


To keep the kilns at the local ironworksconstantly charged a narrow gauge tramway system was constructed. It became the largest 2ft gauge railway system in the ironstone industry. Calcined ore was transhipped into Brymbo standard gauge wagons at Hook Norton sidings on the Banbury and Cheltenham Railway branch of the GWR, opened in 1887. The presence of the large deposits of ironstone in Oxfordshire and the expectation of transporting it had been a great influence on the routing of the Banbury and Cheltenham Railway.
