20 Photos of... Tram of the Year winners

When Blackpool Standard 159 was named "Tram (Traditional) of the Year" as part of the British Trams Online Tram of the Year 2022 it became the twentieth different tram to claim that accolade since the first contest back in 2003. Including 18 traditional trams and two modern vehicles (before the award was split in 2014), this collection features each one of those winners. This includes the only dual winner Blackpool Brush 623 plus trams from across the British Isles.

Over the years there have been ten trams which have originally come from Blackpool (but not always winners because of Blackpool), four from the Isle of Man, three from Crich, two from Birkenhead, two from Heaton Park (including our dual winner) and two from the East Anglia Transport Museum (including our latest winner) - although those are their usual locations though its sometimes been down to loans elsewhere that they have won the award. The modern winners came from Nottingham Express Transit and the Trampower project.

The photos included in this gallery are provided in order of their first win in the contest bit don't necessarily come from the year they won.
