The Heritage Steam Experience on the “Snowdon Lily”
The Snowdon Lily is built on the original chassis and bogey from the original carriage of 1896. The unique original nature of our railway means that the visitor of today will experience exactly what our ancestors did back in 1896 and see for themselves how beautiful the mountain is as they journey through the clouds to Yr Wyddfa, Snowdon.
Pushed by one of our three working steam locomotives from 1896, the Snowdon Lily is an accurate re-construction of one of our original Snowdon Mountain Tramroad & Hotels Co Ltd 1896 observation carriages. Seating only 34 passengers with a central aisle, in twos and fours, we urge passengers who prefer a little more room to book their trip on the Snowdon Lily.
Departures leave Llanberis three times per day, May to October and pre-booking is advised to avoid disappointment. Journey time to the summit is one hour with a 30 minute stop over at the peak.
