Summary[edit]

Description
English: Great Orme Tramway A descending car threads its way down Old Road. Not surprisingly normal motor traffic is prohibited on this road! The promenade and Colwyn Bay can be seen in the distance. The "tram" is actually a funicular railway hauled by a cable concealed in the central slot in the roadway at this point. A funicular railway has two vehicles connected and counterbalance on a length of cable so that one descends as the other ascends. The Great Orme Tramway is in two sections, hence there is a total of four vehicles. Note that this car carries the number 5!
