Slate on Nystrup Gravel

On my recent trip to Wales, I picked up a few pieces of slate at Ffestiniog. Some of them have suddenly appeared on some of Nystrup Gravel's 1:35 flat wagons. No slate was naturally present around Nystrup so the slabs are probably imports on their way to Ericsons Stenhuggeri (Ericson's Stone Masonry). It was a small affair some 100 m from the Nystrup tracks. It sometimes had stone slabs delivered via removable track panels.
Loco 3 made by Swedish manufacturer Sala with a short train of Welsh slate slabs passing Banke's Bakelite.

The train enroute to Ericksson's Stone Masonry. The stone masonry was accessed via removable track panels. Some of the track panels were owned by the stone masonry and were made completely from wood.
