Lake railway - end of line
Wales

This narrow gauge railway is from about 1845 when it was a slate railway bringing the slate from the quarries to the harbours at the Menai Strait. Today the railway line is still operational and steam engines are used to give tourists the opportunity to enjoy the views of Snodown and Llyn Padarn.
