The Snowdon Mountain Railway trains will return to the summit for the first time since the start of the pandemic this month.
The railway has not run to the summit for the last three years, initially due to the pandemic and more recently because of essential upper mountain track work.
On April 1, the railway was partially reopened, travelling as far as Clogwyn Station, three quarters of the distance to the summit as the remaining track underwent upgrades.
It was announced in January that the full track would reopen in mid-May, however that date has been delayed to June 24 as upgrades on the final 1000 metres of track are completed.
Summit visitors centre Hafod Eryri will also reopen.
Vince Hughes, commercial manager at Snowdon Mountain Railway, said: “We are extremely excited to once again offer our visitors the full journey to the summit of Snowdon, and to welcome passengers and walkers back to Hafod Eryri.
“With over 1,000 metres of line relayed for the enhancement and long-term improvement of the Snowdon Mountain Railway service, this was a historic and successful undertaking.
“Our operations and commercial teams have worked incredibly hard in preparation for our trains returning to the summit, and we are looking forward to a busy few months ahead.
“This is a massively exciting time for Snowdon Mountain Railway and we have plenty to look forward to!”
