Gallery 610: Great Orme Tramway - April & May 2016

It has been over 30 years since British Trams Online Editor Gareth Prior last visited Llandudno and to be honest he can remember very little of that holiday apart from the fact it rained for a fortnight! But the lack of visits to the Great Orme Tramway was rectified over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend with a trip mainly in aid of riding and photographing this unique cable hauled tramway. With the May Day Bank Holiday weekend being almost as early as it could be in 2016 this collection of photos actually starts on the last day of April, which proved to be the best day weather wise although these photos don't do justice to how much a chill there was in the wind! We feature all four trams extensively with 4 and 5 operating on the lower section and 6 and 7 on the upper - just as they have done for the past 114 years.

All Photographs in this collection were taken by Gareth Prior between Saturday 30th April & Monday 2nd May 2016.
