Notes:
Unless stated otherwise the last operated dates are at Crich.
Those trams shown as Operational are those which are expected to be commissioned for the 2022 season. The following trams should be used in passenger service at some point during the year: Glasgow 22, Sheffield 74, Newcastle 102 (after completion of testing), London County Council 106, London United Tramways 159 (after completion of testing), Blackpool 166 (after completion of testing), Blackpool 167, Leeds 180, Blackpool 236, Oporto 273, Metropolitan Electric Tramways 331, Leeds 345, Leeds 399, Sheffield 510, Blackpool 630, Liverpool 869, London Transport 1622 (after completion of testing) and Berlin 223 006-4. Chesterfield 7 is a reserve tram and subject to the completion of its overhaul Blackpool Standard 40 will enter service later in the season.
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.
Blackpool 40 has now been moved to the Workshop and currently lifted from its trucks. It is also surrounded by scaffolding to enable its roof to be re-canvased as part of an overhaul.
Birmingham Central Tramways 75 was transferred from the Black Country Living Museum to storage at Clay Cross in late 2017.
Bournemouth 85 is displayed on a short piece of 3'6" track in the Great Exhibition Hall.
Newcastle 102's overhaul started on 30th June 2018 when it was moved to the Workshop. The overhaul - supported by Tramcar Sponsorship Organisation - is nearing completion and the tram is now back in the depot awaiting final testing/commissioning.
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 Streetlife Museum in Hull as a static exhibit.
London United Tramways 159 is now back in the depot following attention in the Workshop. It now awaits final testing and commissioning before returning to service.
Blackpool 166 is now in the depot awaiting final testing and commissioning before entering service again after the completion of its workshop attention.
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 returned to Crich on 11th June 2021 having spent nearly seven years in store at Clay Cross. It will the next restoration project thanks to funding from the TSO. A new underframe, constructed by the Ffestiniog Railway, was delivered to Crich on 9th July 2021. It is currently in the depot with the old and new underframe stored side-by-side on accomodation bogies with the dismantled body stored in various locations.
Blackpool 762 has been withdrawn from service with a motor armature issue and will require workshop attention before being commissioned for service.
Halle 902 was moved to the Clay Cross store on 21st April 2022 having spent almost four years stored in Blackpool (leaving Crich on 22nd May 2018.
London Transport 1622 is in the depot awaiting final testing and commissioning ahead of an expected return to service in 2022.
Berlin 223 006-4 is the Access Tram for disabled visitors.
