Transport of Delight

National Tramway Museum, Crich

The Tramway Museum at Crich is based in an old quarry in the
Derbyshire hills bought by the Tramway Museum Society in
1960. In the succeeding years, it has expanded to become
the largest collection of trams in the UK and operates them
along a one-mile stretch of track.

These photographs were taken on a visit in March 2003. At
that time the winter timetable was in force and only two cars
- Blackpool "Pantograph" car 167 and LCC Class B 106 - were
in service, hence them appearing frequently in the pictures.
There are photos of some of the other cars plus a
number of views of this very scenic line.

There are 17 photographs in this gallery.
