No. 6 Padarn at Snowdon Summit

The Snowdon Mountain Railway has released some stunning drone footage of their trains running up and down the mountain.

The video, which has been shot with the help of CameraDrone, sees the stunning views available from the trains, which run up to the summit of Snowdon throughout the summer months.

Both steam locomotives and diesel locomotives will take you up to the summit, and is truly superb on a clear day, with views towards Porthmadog and north towards Caernarfon.

We have used the Snowdon Mountain Railway in the past and have been really lucky with the views, similar to that in the video. You can see more here.

This is really superb footage, I’m sure you will agree, if you would like to see more drone footage, then please like CameraDrone’s Facebook page here.
