Snowdon Mountain Railway

A day on the railway

It came to my attention that the Snowdon Mountain Railway had changed most of their trains and carriages. New photographs were needed for new cards, but we only had 2 weeks of the season left in which to do it! Ali and I headed up on the first day that showed any sign of being reasonable. Most of the way up we were in the clouds, and it was with excitement that we broke through the top of them.
What a lovely autumn day, above the clouds the whole time. Apart from the trains emerging from the mist we saw several brocken spectres. Just the highest peaks of Snowdonia could be seen above the clouds.
