Llandudno & Colwyn Bay Electric Railway Dvd




An evocative selection of films (much in colour) recapturing the glory days of one of Britain’s most popular and best loved coastal tramways.

Assembled to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the closure of the most famous seaside tramway in North Wales, this programme features spectacular scenes along the entire length of the highly scenic line.
