My view entirely. If I wanted to climb Snowdon with a partner, as I have done quite often, I would not want to start out paying £40+ to get to Rhyd Ddu from Porthmadog before even setting foot on the mountain. The limited service is also a discouragement. Parking is limited and expensive but still by far the cheaper option is to use the car. Same would apply to people wanting to visit Beddgelert. The railway is really just for people who see it as their main interest, and have plenty of money. However the roads are quite narrow in several places and reducing car useage would be welcomed.
