The Snowdon Mountain Railway

Creator: John Wake    Length: 3 min  54 sec

This video shows the Snowdon Mountain Railway - a rack railway which has been climbing the highest mountain in England and Wales for more than a century. The dramatic scenery is complemented by an atmospheric soundtrack.

The Snowdon Mountain Railway is one of North Wales' most popular tourist attractions, as it offers visitors the chance to climb Snowdon without a very long and tough walk! Snowdon is more than 3,500 feet above sea level, so as you'd expect the views from the top are spectacular.

At the end of the video, you'll also catch a glimpse of nearby Llanberis Lake Railway, which is also a must-see destination for railway enthusiasts visiting the area.

Whether you're a fan of steam railways, Welsh mountain scenery, or acoustic music, you're sure to find something to enjoy in this video.
