When we left to Vale of Clwyd Railway to reverse onto the Chester and Holyhead Railway at the open station of Rhyl, after that reversal the first closed station that we would have met was Foryd (C&HR) which was renamed as Kinmel Bay East in 1938.

I am somewhat unsure if there was a chord from the Vale of Clwyd Railway in the opposite direction that would have obviated the need for a reversal of Rhyl in the direction that we are now taking.

Drat ! was "asleep at the switch" there.

I can become a bore about Tony Dewick's atlas: but he tends rather prolifically to believe in, and show, chords which many sources don't -- he indicates no chord in this instance.
