    A Piece of History

    21st August 2010

    Snowdon Mountain Railway has just been lucky enough to receive a piece of history from the early days of the railway. Kindly donated by Tristan Thomas of Llanberis this amazing horseshoe measures almost 22cms by 20cms and over 2cms thick. It came off one of the horses that were used during the construction of the railway in 1895. It will now be incorporated into the exhibition area for 2011. The photo shows it next to an average size horseshoe and the 50 pence piece in the main photo gives you some idea of it’s size. Back to Recent News
