Trams actually on site at Crich now fall into three categories: Operational, On Static Display and Under Attention. As a result if a tram is withdrawn from service awaiting workshop space it will now be shown as "On Display".
Leamington & Warwick 1 is displayed in the Exhibition Hall in "as found" condition.
London Transport 1 moved into the Workshop on Saturday 14th June 2014 ready for a start to be made on its major restoration. The work is being funded by the London County Council Tramways Trust.
Sheffield 15 is the operational horse tram. It is normally displayed in the Exhibition Hall but is used in service on rare occasions.
Cardiff 21 is a double deck horse tram on loan to Crich from Collections Centre, Nantgarw, Wales.
Dundee 21 is a steam tram trailer.
Edinburgh 35 has received some cosmetic attention during winter 2013/14 which has included the uncovering of its genuine hand-painted advertisements from the 1950s. It has now been placed on display inside the Exhibition Hall.
Blackpool & Fleetwood 40 returned to service in Blackpool on 20th July following an overhaul over the winter and was then transported to Crich on 21st July for a period of operation in connection with the Electric 50 celebrations. After commissioning the tram entered service at Crich on 1st August and will now be used on a regular basis.
Southampton 45 is available for service again in 2014 on a limited basis. It will be withdrawn from service following the Electric 50 event on 14th September.
Johannesburg 60 has been moved from the Exhibition Hall to Depot V, presumably awaiting workshop attention.
Sheffield 74 is in fact made from 3 different trams - the upper and lower decks are two different Sheffield trams, and the trucks are from Leeds.
Leicester 76 has been returned to its usual position in the Exhibition Hall after being extracted for the 2013 Enthusiasts Day.
MBRO 84 is a Manchester, Bury, Rochdale and Oldham Steam Tramway, steam engine. It is a Wilkinson Patent Vertical Boiler Steam tram built by Beyer Peacock in 1886, running until 1905 when it went to a foundry in Wigan until 1954. It has been given to the NTM from the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry.
Newcastle 102 was transferred to the Exhibition Hall during a major shunting operation on 1st February 2014.
Leeds 107 is a double deck horse tram which arrived at Crich on 27th August 2013 following restoration by the Leeds Transport Historical Society. It is now on display in the Exhibition Hall whilst investigtions into an incident at the Middleton Railway are ongoing.
Newcastle 114 is on a short-term loan from Beamish for use at the Electric 50 event weekend. It arrived at Crich on 8th September and underwent its first test runs on 10th September and is expected to enter service on 12th September.
Blackpool 167 is now back at Crich following its loan periods at both Beamish and Blackpool earlier in 2014. It is currently in the workshop being recommissioned for service.
London Tramways Co. 184 was moved to Crich in 2014 to be dismantled. Some parts which were beyond economical repair have been scrapped with the remaining parts being packaged up ready for a return to Clay Cross for ongoing storage.
Oporto 273 has returned to service following an overhaul over winter 2013/4.
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 and although there is a fund in place for this work it does not cover the complete restoration. Due to space contraints at the main Museum site it was necessary to move it to the off site store.
MET 331 returned to service on 30th July 2014 after workshop attention following a derailment in July 2013.
Sheffield 510 was re-launched into service at the "Best of Sheffield" event on 17th May 2014 following an overhaul.
Blackpool 711 is currently on loan from Blackpool and is expected to stay at Crich until November 2014. It entered service at the museum on 24th May during the 'Beside the Seaside' event.
Blackpool 762 is under attention in the workshop ahead of an expected launch into museum service during 2014. Testing of the tram on the main line commenced in September 2013 although some work remains to be completed before it is approved to carry passengers.
Liverpool 869 is now in the Workshop where it has been lifted ready for an overhaul which should see the tram back in service at some point in 2015.
Berlin 223 006-4 is the Access Tram for disabled visitors.

Cardiff 131 was restored to an operational condition in time for the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Museum at Crich in 2009 as it was the first tram to arrive on site back in 1959. Since restoration it has visited Beamish Museum in April 2010 and was loaned to Blackpool between November 2011 and March 2012 to scrub the rails between Starr Gate and Pleasure Beach although was only used on a couple of occasions and spent most of its time tucked up inside Starr Gate Depot.

Modern Tower Wagon 4 has been rebuilt in early 2011 on the underframe of TW3 so as to meet the latest modern safety standards.
