Information on services available

After careful consideration the company has decided not to open the summit building ‘Hafod Eryri’ for the 2020 season. This decision is based on the difficult practicalities of trying to implement safe social distancing measures within the building.

They have also made the decision not to operate their Heritage Steam Service for 2020 and will instead focus on their Traditional Diesel Service throughout the season. They have made significant internal adjustments to our carriages which enables safe segregation between compartments and reduced passenger numbers.

The destination for the remaining 2020 season will be Clogwyn Station, which is ¾ distance to the summit of Snowdon. The journey time to Clogwyn is approximately 45 minutes and passengers will have a 30-minute stop-over at this unsheltered station.  Please be aware that there are no facilities at Clogwyn, or on-board the trains.

The service represents approximately 2-hour experience overall.
