Bottom tramway depot

The Shipley Glen Tramway is a 1 ft 8 in (508 mm) gauge funicular tramway located close to Saltaire railway station, Saltaire, West Yorkshire, England at grid reference SE139385.

It is the oldest working cable tramway in Great Britain, excepting cliff railways, having opened in 1895. It is now open as a tourist attraction, but was closed during 2009 until October due to brake problems, fundraising and repair work.

The tramway uses the older design of funicular with two parallel tracks throughout its length.
