It was a firm called the Urban Electric Supply Company, a subsidiary of Edmunson's Electricity Corporation, that proposed and subsequently opened an electric tramway from Camborne to Redruth.
After lunch, they were all taken for a trip and then the cars went into normal service.
Trams ran half-hourly with 4 cars from 5.30am to 8.00am, then quarter-hourly with 6 cars. On Fridays the service was every 7 minutes, 2.00pm to 7.00 pm and to 9.00pm on Saturdays. The last through tram from each end went at 11.05pm and then back to the Depot. The time for the full journey was 23 minutes and the fare initially 2d.
