On the photo of the earliest land train it says this:

"Plans for land trains in Llandudno, like this one pictured in February 1991, ran out of steam, but in later years a similar venture seems to be more successful"

Actually, it was the Police who refused it permission to go along Gloddaeth Avenue, thus dooming the project from the outset. Strangely, they changed their mind with the subsequent application.

At the moment I am thinking of dooming the project, for years the land train rang a bell to get attention, slightly annoying, but you get used to it, now I believe they are using the horn of the vehicle, numerous times throughout the day   $angry$   bring back the bell $good$

It is only the driver of the Blue train that insists on tooting his horn at every opportunity, so I walked over and had a quiet word and things have now got a lot better.  clappinghappy

Many thanks B.,   &well&    A quiet word was probably best, it was beginning to get very annoying, I have been indoors today with the rain, and have not heard anything,      so fingers crossed.
