One Response to Heritage Trams for the next week…

  1. Bob Price says:

    Great list, thank you for this and for the site.

    Three more came to mind, but they may not necessarily come under the heading of heritage – Great Orme, Shipley Glen and the Heath Park Tramway in Cardiff. The later is a third scale one, but a fun place to go on a sunny bank holiday.
