The Great Orme Tramway :: SH7783

The Great Orme Tramway (LinkExternal link ) was built in 1902 to take passengers from Llandudno to and from the summit of the Great Orme. It is Britain's only remaining cable operated street tramway and one of only three surviving in the world.
The tramway uses four tramcars, all of which have been in service since 1902.

The tramway has three main stations, the lower station, named ‘Victoria’ after the hotel that formerly occupied the station site, the one in the centre appropriately named 'Halfway' and the Great Orme Summit station.
