Those trams shown as Operational are expected to see use at some point in 2019 but may not yet be commissioned for service.
The current location is where the tram can normally be found. However at times trams may be moved to other locations around the Museum as required.
Clay Cross store is the museum's off site storage with no public access.
Leamington & Warwick 1 is displayed in the Exhibition Hall in "as found" condition.
London County Council 1 moved into the Workshop on Saturday 14th June 2014 and is now undergoing a major restoration.
Sheffield 15 is the operational horse tram. It is normally displayed in the Exhibition Hall but is used in service on special horse tram days.
Cardiff 21 is a double deck horse tram on loan to Crich from Collections Centre, Nantgarw, Wales.
Blackpool & Fleetwood 40 arrived at Crich on 6th September 2019 following the conclusions of its loans at Blackpool and then Beamish. It returned to service on 21st September 2019 at the Crich 60 event.
Birmingham Central Tramways 75 was transferred from the Black Country Living Museum to storage at Clay Cross in late 2017.
Bournemouth 85 arrived at Crich on Friday 25th August 2017 and following display at Tram Day the following month has now been moved into its permanent position within the Great Exhibition Hall. The tram is displayed on a short piece of 3'6" track.
Newcastle 102 was moved into the workshop on 30th June 2018 for a start on a Tramway Sponsorship Organisation funded overhaul. The tram has already been lifted to allow its trucks to be removed for overhaul and is now standing on accomodation bogies. It is expected to take 3 years to complete the overhaul.
The only remaining section of Nottingham 121 is one end making it highly unlikely it will be used for the basis of restoration with both other Nottingham tram bodies in a better condition.
Kingston upon Hull 132 is on long term loan at the Hull Museum of Transport as a static exhibit.
Both North Metropolitan Tramways 184 and the unknown North Metropolitan Tramways tram body have been dismantled with the parts "flat-packed" for the potential restoration as one horse car in the future.
Blackpool 298 was moved to Clay Cross on 11th July 2014 for further storage. The tram is partially restored although requires a significant amount of work to restore it to operational condition. It is planned that the tram will return to Crich for restoration in 2020.
Halle 902 left Crich on 22nd May 2018 for a loan for a minimum of 2 years to Blackpool for storage and occasional display only.
London Transport 1622 is now in the Workshop undergoing work to return it to service.
Berlin 223 006-4 is the Access Tram for disabled visitors.
