Railway[eedit | eedit soorce]

Esgairgeiliog wis a station on the narrae-gauge Corris Railway, although prospective passengers haed tae cross the river intae Merionethshire (soothren Gwynedd the day) tae catch the train. A steeply-gradit branch line crossed the river an led tae the ERA quarry, carryin slate tae Machynlleth for transshipment.

The station haes recently been structurally an cosmetically restored as the Corris Railway is being reinstatit back tae Esgairgeiliog.

The station at Esgairgeiliog is the basis for Ulfstead Road, ane o the Mid Sodor Railway's stations in the Railway Series.
