After we looked at some of the Granada Studios “trams” last week in 1985 we move forward 11 months to May 1986 where they seem to have multiplied somewhat!
In these photos we can see at least three trams and they have a northeast connection now as at least one has Newcastle upon Tyne Corporation Tramways on the side and another is heading to Wallsend. With period adverts on the trams we have one single decker (again numbered 50) plus two double deckers (one of which carried the number 20). What does seem clearer here is the rubber tyres to aid their movement.
Again, anyone with any more information on these vehicles please let us know! We’ve also been told that there was a “tram” numbered 50 at Thorpe Park Resort in the 1990s – was this one of those from Granada Studio Tours?
