First time climbing snowdon


My partner and myself would like to climb snowdon on bank holiday weekend, I would like to do an easyish route and catch the train down but it seems you can't book it? Was thinking would it make a difference if we booked a return ticket but only used it on the way down? Whilst my partner is fit I am only average and would like to rest my legs and enjoy the train ride whilst still having the challenge of walking up!

if you follow the train track route the walk is about 6 hours return.

The problem with using the train one way is they try and fill all the seats and you get a short stop at the top and then everybody boards the train they came up on so even if you bought a return ticket to use just on the way down you might find the train is all ready full for the downward trip.
