The Strength and Rainbow Trains

The fantastic Rotary members in North Wales have once again chartered two Snowdon Mountain Railway (SMR) trains to ensure that people with cancer, people with dementia and their carers who aren’t able to take part in the Snowdon Rocks hike can join in on the day.

Billed as a ‘Day with a Difference’, some of the Snowdon Rocks train passengers last year described the event as ‘the most special day’ and ‘a day we will cherish forever’.

People affected by cancer and their carers are invited to join the Strength Train whilst families affected by dementia are invited to join the Rainbow Train. Places on the train are allocated on a first come, first served basis.

All passengers can expect a warm welcome, music, a snack and an enchanting trip to the summit of Snowdon. All at no cost thanks to the remarkable generosity and dedication of the North Wales Rotarians.

Passengers who are able to are permitted to walk from the summit train station to the ‘gig on the summit’ to catch Mike Peters and friends performing at the top of Snowdon though time on the summit is very limited. Those taking part in the hike are able to come and meet family members on the trains at the summit platform.
