Welshpool Horse Tram - Can you help?

Tony sent me this marvellous photo, circa 1910, from his father's collection.
It is the horse tramway that connected Welshpool train station to Port Welshpool Jetty 5 kms away which I have previously posted about HERE.
Can you identify any of these chaps in the photo or have any information about the horse tramway at Welshpool at all ?


  1. I think the horse is called Cyril. I've no historical documentation to back this up, but he looks like a Cyril to me.

  2. Dear Jayne, have you tried contacting the Puffing Billy Preservation Society or the Australian Railway Historical Society about this photo. They may be able to help you. Great photo! good luck, John
