Snowdon Mountain Railway is a rack railway running to the top of Snowdon, highest mountain in Wales. I tried to imitate the color scheme of the line's rolling stock, and I'm fairly pleased with the way it came out.
The gear in the inset on the side of the engine rotates when the train moves, using gears that run off of the rack-and -pinion in the center of the track.
The rack mechanism on the underside of the engine.

Awesome! I've actually climbed snowdOn! are yoU welsh? I love how accurate this looks!
Never been to Wales in my life, but I thought the color scheme looked neat when when I was researching for this. That's awesome that you've actually seen this place! This is what's so neat about MOCpages- that one minute after you post a model, someone can come and say that they've actually seen the train you designed from Internet pictures :D
