Each of these carriages had a capacity of 56 passengers, plus a guard.

Every passenger carriage had its own set of pinions, with automatic brakes as an added precaution.

The total track length is 7.53 kilometers with a steepest gradient of 1 in 5.5 (or 1 meter rise every 5.5m travelled).

Snowdon Mountain Railway is the only public rack and pinion railway in the United Kingdom.

The solution is to mount a toothed rack between the running rails and provide a cog (pinion) on the locomotive.

In this way Hunslet have built on a solid safety record but improved the performance of this safety critical piece of equipment.

The rack and pinion system used is that patented by the Swiss engineer Dr Roman Abt.

The railway uses double rack rails, fastened to steel sleepers between the running rails.

The new carriages also have a stunning new livery which will be reflected on the diesel locomotives that will power them up the mountain.

Also this choice has allowed the Railway to increase the capacity of each carriage from the current 56 to the new capacity of 74 without change in seating space from previous carriages.
