T is for Tramway
It,s ABC Wednesday and T is for Tram - the Llandudno Tram in North Wales
The Tram Travels along Tracks from the Tram Station to the Top of the Great Orme at Llandudno
We visited a few months back and experienced this exhiliarting ride - the Great Orme Towers above Llandudno an old Victorian seaside Town.
The Orme is home to its own copper mine and also the wild khasmir goats roam the hillsides and if you are lucky you may catch sight of them
There are Tremendous views of the Town from the Tram as you Travel To The Top Tram station
A sculpture of a wild goat stands proudly close to the summit for all to see
To catch a glimpse of the real thing is of course more special.
For the record the Tram is the UK's longest standing cable hauled Tramway- it has been in operation since 1902
