Victoria Station, the starting point for the journey to the top of the Great Orme by tram.

  1. Remember the happy anticipation of boarding this tram with young son and,in latter years,grandson for a trip up the Orme.Very steep at first.One wonders if the mechanism will hold and then the views unfold,we wave at people walking down,take photographs and,in typical Llandudno weather,enjoy the sun and salty smell of the sea when we reach the top!You have captured the moment.

    • Just missing a big blue sky Barbara!

  2. It looks nice! Love the sign.

  3. I think I’d like to take this tram.

  4. I don’t think you’ve shown this very attractive station previously. Do they shut down in the winter because of the cold/snow or merely because there aren’t very many customers?

    • Mainly due to insufficient numbers of customers, and they spend the winter months overhauling and maintaining the system I think.

  5. The stonework is attractive!

  6. What a beautiful structure – makes me somehow happy to know trams are still alive and kicking around the world (they’re sadly rare here)!

  7. I hope to ride that tram one day!
