Last week we saw some video footage from Lune Tube of a lost Bradford tram stored on a farm at Sunderland Farm, but as we all know that is not the only tram that is still out there in the UK countryside. British Trams Online reader Royston Morris has recently contacted us seeking information about three more trams and we are throwing out this where are they now request to the wider readership to see if anyone can help him locate the bodies…
Considering that Bournemouth Corporation Tramways ceased operation in 1936 there are a remarkable number of trams from that system which are still in existence in some form. One of these is no. 53 which was last reported to be in use as an office in Wareham, Dorset. It was believed to be last in the back garden of a property in East Street but despite finding an area which looked as if it might have previously had a tram sized item on it there was no sign of the tram. Does anyone know where no. 53 is now located?
Does anyone know where – or even if it still exists – the last Taunton Tramcar body is located? Royston has been trying to find out if it still exists, or if it has been scrapped, for the past dozen or so years and would be very grateful for an answer on this one so he can stop looking!
Royston was recently informed that there was a Nottingham Tramcar body in Ollerton but has been unable to find any further information. Again can anyone assist to let him know if this is true or not?
If you have any information on the above please let us know either by leaving a comment below or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will then pass it on to Royston. It may be that some of these trams are on private property and are the owners don’t wish to publicise their location but if any confirmation can be made that they are still about we are sure Royston would be very grateful!
