Welcome to the Great Orme Tramway! Llandudno, Sat 20 August 2011. The 3ft 6in gauge tramway opened in 1903 and operates in two separate sections, with two trams on each. Each section is a cable-operated funicular. The cars are permanently attached to their cable, and as one car descends, the other ascends. There is a passing loop in the middle of each section. Each car has an attendant. Each section has a winchman at Halfway station, who starts, slows and stops the cables in response to signals from the attendants.
