In October 2020 the North Wales Amateur Radio Group held a special event station on the Great Orm in LLandudno North Wales as part of the “railways on the air” series of special event stations.
The Great Orme Tramway is Britain’s only cable-hauled public road tramway and has been delighting visitors to Llandudno since it opened on July 31st 1902.
The Tramway climbs a mile (1500m) high up the Great Orme Country Park and Nature Reserve with the unique journey beginning at Victoria Station. Change trams at the Halfway Station and continue your journey to the Summit where the views are breath-taking. On a clear day, it’s possible to see as far as the Isle of Man, Blackpool and the Lake District!
The original Victorian tramcars have been lovingly restored over the years and you will be re-living the experience of travel more than 100 years ago.
