The Brienz Rothorn locomotive is coming to Wales courtesy of Switzerland Tourism and the Swiss Travel Centre in London. It will take passengers up Snowdon as far as the Waterfall station which is 182m above sea level. See this link:

SATURDAY, 22nd September 2018 11 a.m.

Swiss in North Wales meet at Llanberis Mountain Railway station. 

The station master will give a short talk about the history of the Swiss locomotive and its connection with Wales, before it departs to the Waterfall stop.  


The 12.32 train on the 22nd September has been reserved for the Swiss party only. Bost seats are now booked but a very small number of tickets (free) are still available for this departure with the North Wales Swiss. Should you wish to join them, get in touch with the organiser Beatrice Schlegel as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
