Additional Attractions

Electric Tram
To cater for the older section of our communities and handicapped people a 15 inch gauge tramcar was built in Walsall on a chassis created by Brett Rogers and T.M.A. Engineering and a 1/2mile length of track was laid parallel to the main line from Llandudno Junction to Blaenau Ffestiniog, providing us with the only station footbridge in the United Kingdom to span three different gauges of 71/4 inch, 15 inch and standard gauge.

Ride on the 1/3rd full-size electric tramcar from one end of the site to the other.

Unfortunately, the tram is currently not operational. The line was flooded on Boxing Day and gales have brought down the power cables so it is a big job to get everything working again.
