They Ran in 2022!

As we enter another year its time for one last look at which heritage trams ran in 2022. This is as a complete list of heritage trams which operated with passengers on board during the calendar year 2022 – it doesn’t include anything which has just been under test but does include trams which may only have run on a Private Hire. Inevitably we will have forgotten something so if you notice any omissions or errors please let us know (full contact details at the end of the article).

There will be limited services on our trolleybuses on selected weekends and bank holidays. Our trams are currently out of operation, but will be on show for visitors to view.”

This list is intended to show those trams which have run in some form of passenger service during 2022 (and thus does not include those on test/driver training) and is as accurate as possible, although errors may have occurred. Various online sources have been used to collate this information.
