As so often happens in former tramway towns when work takes place on roads old tram track – buried long ago when the tramway was abandoned in the name of progress – is discovered once again. Another instance of this has happened in Colwyn Bay with the track now dug up and presented to the Llandudno & Colwyn Bay Electric Railway Society.
The track is a 10 foot section and was taken up to make room for the construction of a manhole for the new Council offices at Colwyn Bay. The Society gladly accepted the donation and now plan to make a feature of it along with photos to show where it came from.
It is 62 years since the last tram ran over the track on Saturday 24th March 1956.
