Artist's Description

The Fairbourne and Barmouth Railway opened in 1895 as a 2ft tramway and was regauged to 15in in 1916 then underwent another change of gauge to 12¼ inches in 1986. Among the features of the two-and-a-half mile seafront line is a tunnel through the sand-dunes. One of the line’s intermediate stations claims to have the world’s longest station name:Gorsafawddachachaidraigddanheddogleddollonpenrhynareudraethceridigi, accepted by the Guinness Book of Records as the longest place name in the British Isles. It translates into English as: The Mawddach station with its dragon’s teeth on the northerly Penrhyn Drive on the golden beach of Cardigan Bay.
