The Aberystwyth Cliff Railway is one of two railways to use stepped carriages. It was opened in 1896. The Aberystwyth Electric Cliff Railway - the longest electric cliff railway in Britain - is one of the most popular attractions in Aberystwyth. It climbs Constitution Hill from the northern end of the town's promenade; trains run every few minutes during the spring, summer and early autumn.
The mechanism was originally water balanced but was replaced by the current electric winding mechanism in 1921.
