Sheffield 510, built in 1950, lasted for just ten years before Sheffield's original tramway closed down. It was another of the early runners at Crich in the 1960s.
Right at the back of the procession was Leeds 602 - the most modern British tram at Crich. This fine tramcar is now back in service following workshop attention to prevent its roof from leaking.
Once the cavalcade had ended the huge line-up of trams in the museum street that it had created, made for another great photo opportunity. Here, Blackpool 4 is waiting its turn to reverse at Town End before returning to the depot.
Sheffield 74 heads an impressive tram line-up. Service car 166 can be seen passing the procession in the distance.
