Eastbourne days return to the Seaton Tramway

Normally when you attend the Seaton Tramway the scheduled services are mainly covered by the new trams 9, 10 and 11 – the high capacity, disabled friendly vehicles built in the early part of this century – which means for any regular visitors it can become a bit monotonous on the variety of trams. But now the Tramway have announced that on all Fridays and Saturdays from 26 July until 4 September the majority of services will be operated by the older “Eastbourne” trams to give enthusiasts the perfect excuse to make a visit to ride on these trams.

Trams will depart Seaton every 20 minutes between 1000 and 1700 on these days and it is hoped that the trams which operated in Eastbourne, before the tramway upped sticks and moved to Devon, will form most services although there may be occasions when this is not possible.

The trams which should form the backbone of the service on these days are 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12 which were all operated in Eastbourne in the 1960s – although some don’t look as they did in those days!

This is a pleasing development at Seaton and will hopefully prove fruitful with enthusiasts paying a visit to this charming tramway, which has a pleasant three mile journey through two nature reserves in the glorious Axe Valley.
