Llanberis Lake Railway
Llanberis Lake Railway information
If you need something to placate the kids on days that the Snowdonia Mountain Railway isn't operating, this little steam train might be just the ticket. It departs on a 5-mile return jaunt along the route used from 1843 to 1961 to haul slate to the port on the Menai Strait.
The gentle, scenic one-hour return trip heads alongside Llyn Padarn, past the National Slate Museum and through Padarn Country Park to the terminus at Penllyn. The starting point is either Llanberis Station (across the A4086 from the Snowdon Mountain Railway station) or Gilfach Ddu Station (in Padarn Country Park).
