Leeds Tower Car 2 was perhaps a rather surprising inclusion in the procession. It is seen here following Blackpool 4.
Blackpool & Fleetwood Rack 2 is another fine example of a very early British electric tramcar, and it was also the first electric tram to run in passenger service at Crich in 1964.
LCC 106 was next in the line-up. It was built in 1903, and represented early double deck trams in the cavalcade, which aimed to show the development of tramcar design between 1873 and 1953.
Sheffield 74 filled a notable gap in the TMS collection, as it is their only short-canopied car. It returned to traffic following a truck overhaul just in time to feature in the cavalcade.
