Workers are battling to reopen Snowdon Mountain Railway after it was hit by 30ft (9.1m) snow drifts. Two excavators are being used to clear the 4.7 mile (7.5km) track. It is unlikely passengers will be able to travel to the summit over Easter but it is hoped the train will be running to stops three quarters of the way up. The railway resumed operations from Llanberis last week after the winter break but they were suspended within days after heavy snow on the mountain. Alan Kendall, general manager of Snowdon Mountain Railway, said: 'It's the worst I've experienced in the 11 years I've been here.
