THE FRAMLEY TRAM STORY - 2

The decision to build a tram was taken by a group of 1,881 business people way back in 36 under the direction of Sir Christopher Bakebean, later the Duke of Earl, pictured here with his harem.

The consortium initially proposed a tram link between Framley and Codge, with a "Prospector Pete's Wild Ride" log flume between Codge and Urling, then the tram again as far as Clinton. Passengers were encouraged to rely on their own feet to get them between the tram and the insides of buildings in the town. Early tests proved positive for this approach (apart from the log flume) and construction of the first inch of track was completed between Spring and Autumn of that year.
