Where’s that tram moved to?

Big Shunt 2 at Crich saw a number of trams moved around the depots and Great Exhibition Hall to allow Depot II to be fully cleared so that the major refurbishment works could commence. In order to fit all of the trams into undercover storage it was necessary to move some of those trams in the Exhibition Hall into the depots and some of those in the depots into the Exhibition Hall! If you are unsure where your favourite tram is currently spending its nights then look no further as we are able to bring you a complete list of where each tram can currently be found!

Note: In all cases the tram nearest the depot/exhibition hall doors is listed first. Depot roads are numbered from left to right as looking from the depot gates with road 1 the wash bay in the workshop. The lowest numbered road in the Great Exhibition Hall is that furthest from usual pedestrian entrance.

Once work on Depot II has finished all those trams in Depot III (roads 7-9) wil be moved into Depot II (roads 4-6) to allow for work to continue.
