Rights to run on Mumbles railway were bought by Swansea Improvements and Tramways in 1874. On 17/8/1877 they introduced the Hughes Patent steam locomotive 'The Pioneer' (seen here). In 1878 horse-drawn trams were reintroduced, and these continued in use until 1896 when they were finally withdrawn in favour of steam.
