Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Llanberis Lake Railway is a narrow gauge heritage railway that runs for 2.5 miles along the northern shore of Llyn Padarn in north Wales in the Snowdonia National Park. The starting point is the town of Llanberis at the eastern end of the lake, with the western terminus at Pen Llyn in the Padarn Country Park. The return journey takes around 45 minutes.The Llanberis Lake Railway runs along part of the trackbed of the defunct Padarn Railway, a 4 ft gauge line which connected the quarry with Y Felinheli on the Menai Strait. The Padarn Railway closed in October 1961 and was lifted between 16 May 1962 and February 1963. Following the closure of the Padarn Railway, various plans were made to open a 2 ft gauge tourist railway on the trackbed.show more
