More than 100 passengers were stuck on the Peak Tram when it broke down yesterday, halting services for more than six hours. It was the most serious delay to hit the popular tourist attraction in years. A faulty component in an electric motor halted the tram just above the intermediate station by MacDonnell Road at about 10am. Around 110 passengers were aboard the two carriages on the steep slopes of Mid-Levels. After 15 or 20 minutes they were led out of the tram and down the narrow maintenance path to MacDonnell Road, where they dispersed using other forms of public transport. Services were suspended as mechanics worked to repair the motor. At one point about 300 tourists were gathered at Garden Road terminus and 20 at the Peak terminus as they waited for trams to restart. Service resumed at 4.20pm. About 5,000 passengers were affected.
