It was spotted three years later in an Irish field on 2nd June 2011 still sporting the number 25 and in the Llandudno and Colwyn Bay colours as first displayed
over a decade ago on Bodafon Fields - at the Llandudno Transport Festival in 2000

Lisbon Tram No.305 finds a new use in Dublin

Five years later, the former Lisbon 305 has regained her original number
and has been converted into "The Tram Cafe" now located in Dublin

The Llandudno and Colwyn Bay Tramway Society wishes the new owners every success with latest phase in the life of 305


The bogies and running gear have been retained by the Ll&CBTramSoc for possible future use - as was always the Society's original long-term intention
