The Saltburn tramway as it is known replaced a vertical lift which was closed on safety grounds in 1883. The railway opened a year later and provided transport between the pier and the town. The railway is water balanced and from 1924 the water pump was electrically operated. The first major maintenance was carried out in 1998 with the main winding wheel being replaced and a new braking system installed.
