At 1:40pm on Wednesday 25th June, an incident occurred at Crich Tramway Village involving the recently overhauled Oporto 273. It is understood that the tram overshot the terminus and hit the banking at Town End when it was arriving at the loading stop. No passengers were on board at the time, and the rest of the tram service resumed shortly after. The driver of the tram was reportedly treated for minor injuries. The incident is currently under investigation by the Museum’s Traffic and Engineering Teams, and no further information is available at present.
The above information was supplied in an official statement from the Tramway Museum Society by Dr Mike Galer, the General Manager of the Museum.
