Format: Paperback, 210x148 mm, 96 pages

Climbing more than 3,100 ft (1,000 metres) in a little under 5 miles (8 km), the Snowdon Mountain Railway was one of the technological wonders of the late Victorian Age. Now over 100 years old, it continues to transport many tens of thousands of passengers every summer on a spectacular journey from its terminus in the lakeside village of Llanberis to the summit of the highest mountain in Wales. In this profusely-illustrated book, railway historian Keith Turner tells the story of this unique line - a rack railway still reliant on steam locomotives and carriages that first saw service more than a century ago.
