Renewed Interest In Upper Douglas Cable Tramway

The restoration and display of one of the original Upper Douglas Cable Tramway's cable pulley wheels near to the Sea Terminal has created a renewed interest in this long closed public transit system which last ran in 1929.  Throughout its existence, the Cable Tramway was both physically and financially linked to the operation and profitability of the Horse Tramway.

The Trust has added new information pages on its website which outline the history and operation of the Cable Tramway with a selection of historical photographs. The Trust is also helping to develop plans for guided walks along the tramway route in 2019, highlighting landmark buildings and lost features.
