Moving Into the future
In November 2012 an exciting chapter in the history of Snowdon Mountain Railway began when we took delivery of the first of four contemporary carriages. This arrival was the beginning of a new era for the railway and saw the complete replacement of its existing carriages which had served the railway admirably since 1923.The first carriage was quickly followed by the arrival of three additional new carriages in time for the start of the 2013 season.

Clearly having disappointed customers unable to travel on our fabulous steam trains is not good for business so our Railway has taken the decision to build another Heritage Steam Carriage to partner “The Snowdon Lily “ for 2015 . The order has been placed and we anticipate delivery on site in April for commissioning and entry to service in May.

Over the next 13 weeks leading up to the expected delivery date we will be detailing the building of the new carriage and bringing Moel Siabod back to life.
