Snowdon Mountain Railway has been taking visitors to the summit of Wales’ highest mountain since 1896. 

Trains on the historic railway have been able to travel to the summit for the last four years during Easter, but the 4.7 mile rack-and-pinion railway has been hit by 30 ft snow drifts during the coldest March for 50 years.

Following the efforts of Snowdon Mountain Railway’s Permanent Way Team, the track has now been cleared to allow a partial service.

This year sees a landmark event for Snowdon Mountain Railway with the unveiling of new  carriages. Garmendale Engineering Limited designed and manufactured the carriages using innovative new materials and manufacturing techniques to deliver lightweight, durable carriages which are 100% recyclable.
