As well as showing the engine driver admiring the view down the Llanberis path, this photograph also shows a section of the rack and pinion system ( LinkExternal link )that is used by the railway. Apparently, the Snowdon Mountain Railway is the only rack and pinion system in use within the British Isles ( LinkExternal link ).
