01 Nov Garmendale deliver new carriage for Snowdon Mountain Railway

Garmendale today delivers the first of 4 new carriages commissioned over 12 months ago by Snowdon Mountain Railway. This was no ordinary task for our multi skilled Engineers this was a whole new arena.

Garmendale has provided yet another engineered solution to our client’s specification. This time it is a world first and will revolutionise the future of light Urban Transportation.

How did we achieve a reduction of 3000 kg in weight and an increased capacity of 18 passengers?

We now have a proven method of design, fabrication and construction of a Light Urban Transport system that will withstand the harsh and sever climate conditions of Mount Snowdon.

This amazing material has been researched and developed in to a new application, previously used for commercial transportation; we have created an item of envy, with curves and bends in all the right places.

The ultimate engineering solution. These carriages will provide an increased capacity and a decrease of weight. A brand new proven technology that leads to a reduction in power requirements compared to traditional solutions.
