After five months closed, the Pemberton Tramway has relaunched with visitors and locals eager to experience the revitalised ride. The local attraction which provides a tour of the Pemberton countryside and the Cascades, had 210 passengers on opening day. The Pemberton Tramway had been shut since February, due to difficulties with maintenance and operation issues, before being sold to new owners Ben and Sarah Gibellini. They worked with the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator. and previous Tramway owner Ian Willis to ensure that all safety requirements were in compliance ahead of the relaunch. ‘We changed in excess of 150 sleepers on the track to the cascades, for safety assurance of passengers’,” Mr Gibellini said. Both owners said they received a lot of positive remarks from patrons and they made sure the day ran as smoothly and safely as possible for both themselves and attendees. “It was a beautiful and sunny winter day, Ben waved the green flag for the first time, and we had a lot of people around and new uniforms for the staff, including the train driver Adam Lilley.” she said. “We had two people celebrating their birthdays on the tram and as well a couple celebrating their engagement,” Ms Gibellini said.
