Great Orme Tramway

By DicksPics
Firstly, many thanks for the positive responses to my 'Looking Towards Snowdonia' upload and for all of the wonderful User Awards - very much appreciated, as is your continued support and encouragement.SmileSmile

Today's photos were taken last Friday on the final day of our stay in Llandudno, North Wales - when the rain stopped and sun eventually decided to shine!!

The lead image and V1 show Tram No.6 approaching the station at the summit of The Great Orme.

V2, taken a little earlier from the trig point, is a two image panorama looking across the tramway and summit station towards the Conwy Estuary with Snowdonia in the distance.
Anglesey can be seen in the distance to the right of the shot; Puffin Island and Penmon Lighthouse can just be made out.

V3 is a grab shot taken on our way down showing Tram No.5 on the way up!

The other versions show and almost empty Tram No.5 descending one of the steepest parts of its journey and are included to show just how steep the tramway is!

The final version shows the full sweep of Llandudno Bay and part of The Little Orme at the far end.

I hope your week is going well.

Oh Richard, you've made me want to go back there and go on that tram!! Excellent collection here, the lead, V1 & V2 are my faves 👍 Can't quite see Puffin Island or Penmon, but can see my hotel in V7, the County, when I was there last there! 😁 Just have to give you another Award here... 🏆

Quality montage Richard, very difficult to choose a favourite, but I rather think V2 with that sweeping vista is a bostin shot!!!WinkWinkWinkWink

Keep yer powder dry.
