The Great Orme Tramway, Llandudno
24th September 2011

Tramcar No. 5 departing from Victoria tram station in Llandudno North Wales.

The track is in the centre of the street, which soon becomes one way, after leaving the station.

Traffic light controlled junction with additional tram signal.

A vintage view of the above junction seen from the side road (on left of prev picture)
and showing how steep the gradient is.

Car no. 5 enters the passing loop on its descent.

The tramway is comprised of two separate sections which meet at Halfway station and necessitate a change of tram.

The crossing loop on the upper section with no. 7 on the descent. Note that the cables on the upper section are exposed
whereas they run in a conduit on the lower section.

Now seen above the passing loop with a full complement of passengers.

No. 7 arriving at the Summit station.

A view of the cable car station at the summit. Much more fun on the tram!
