    The Sun Rises on a New Era for Snowdon Mountain Railway

    05th November 2012

    The next exciting stage of development for Snowdon Mountain Railway is taking place right now. The first of four new carriages for 2013 was delivered to Llanberis this morning and lifted onto the rails. This is the beginning of a new era at the railway as we move towards the next season in 2013 when the four new carriages will be pushed by the four diesel locomotives in beautiful new livery. This first new carriage will be here for the winter so everything can be in place for the other three to be delivered before we open again in March next year. The steam locomotives will be restored this winter and run later next year.
