History

The Railway Series

In 1951, there was discovered a broad vein of slate in the hills north of Rheneas. This slate is particularly pure and entirely free from metallic substances, thus it is excellent for use in electric switchboards. It was tried out by the British Aluminium Company at their hydro-electric works at Peel Godred, and has been widely specified since both on Sodor and overseas.[1]
