Gallery 728: Picture in Time Special - Crich Tramathon 2003

In this gallery we go back into the archives for a collection of photos taken during the 2003 Tramathon at Crich. At this time there were two main enthusiast events which took place at the home of the National Tramway Museum with this event in June seeing an intensive tram service run throughout the day - in essence if it could run it did run! For the 2003 Tramathon 16 different passenger trams ran in service and although many of those which did operate can still be seen in service at the museum today it also included Gateshead 5 and Leeds 602 whilst Glasgow 1068 was still in its guise as Paisley 68. As well as photos of some of the trams in service we also take a look at other trams - both static and being moved - which includes Johannesburg 60 and Glasgow 1297 being shunted around the depot yard.
