This souvenir DVD, narrated by BBC newsreader Nicholas Owen, tells the unique story of how, against all odds, Seaton Tramway became one of the West Country’s best-loved tourist attractions.
Illustrated by previously unseen footage and rare archive material, you will see how the Tramway was developed by bold enterprise and sheer determination. This is not only the story of the tramcars and track, but also of the people who helped to create the successful venture of today, which welcomes about 100,000 visitors each year.
The fleet of fourteen tramcars is supported by almost one hundred members of staff and volunteers, some of whom appear on the film, to share their thoughts on many different aspects of the Tramway, as it celebrates forty years of operation at Seaton since its opening in 1970.
