We are now open Sundays 12:00 - 16:00
Let's hope that 2022 will give us the opportunity to run a more normal service.

Our thanks go out to all our supporters, volunteers and passengers for their continued support. 2021 was a testing year, but we managed to keep things going albeit in a reduced manner.
Luckily, we did manage to accommodate Santa during December; unfortunately only having three visits as opposed to our usual six did mean at times the queues were very long, despite this, we only had two complaints about excessive waits but a lot of praise for the way we handled things.

We are only able to open Sundays from 12:00-16:00. (More volunteers needed).
The revamped sweet shop is now open and has your favourites.


Things to remember
 Please pay by contactless card as this greatly simplifies transactions for all of us, If you must use cash, ensure you have the correct money.
All our volunteers are exactly that - volunteers; no one gets paid, we all enjoy the tramway and hope you do too. Our volunteers come along because they have an interest in keeping this bit of history working.

Although most restrictions have now been lifted it is only reasonable to err on the side of caution. Relevant precautions will remain in place.

Let's all have an enjoyable day, so please be guided by our volunteers.

Essential maintenance continued during the lockdowns, to ensure safety at all times. The beginning of October saw us have part two of our biannual Safety Inspection and no faults were found.
All the plans for our 125th anniversary have obviously had to be ditched, but all-being-well we are hoping to be able to put on some sort of commemoration in the future.
