    Olympic Torch comes to Snowdon

    23rd November 2011

    Earlier this month it was annouced that the Olympic torch will be visting Snowdon Mountain Railway as part of the torch relay route due to take place next year. The torch will make its 3,560 ft ascent by train to the summit of Snowdon, courtesy of Snowdon Mountain Railway, making it one of the select handful of locations that will see the Olympic flame make its way across the country by an alternative means of transport. The London Olympic 2012 torch will be visiting Snowdon on the 29th May next year, making it one of the proudest moments in the railway's hundred year long history.
