Ffestiniog Travel Introduces New Tram Tours for 2015

The electric tram has come a long way since the first one was launched in Berlin in 1881 - the Gross Lichterfelde Strassenbahn. Cities around the world enjoyed a period of urban tram transportation before many reverted to bus or train MRT systems in the 1960s. However, the older tram systems have not been completely forgotten; many cities still operate the odd tram or two for prosperity, as a major tourist attraction or heritage line. This year Ffestiniog Travel pays homage to the tram with two escorted tours that journey around Austria and Germany, encountering both modern and historic tram networks. For those who enjoy nostalgic holidays consider one of the following 'Train & Tram' tours.
