Hunslet locomotive number 10 'YETI' on Yr Wyddfa
Hunslet locomotive number 10 'YETI' on Yr Wyddfa
'YETI' is seen here pushing its carriage towards the summit station. The locomotive was purchased in 1986 by the Snowdon Mountain Railway Company at a cost of 250,000. Manufactured by the Hunslet Engine Co. in Leeds the locomotive is powered by a Rolls Royce 6 cylinder, 12 litre, turbo charged engine. I suspect most tourists don't realise they have been to the top of Snowdon by Rolls Royce. LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
