In Pictures: A normal day at Crich

The Crich Tramway Village opens daily between March and November every year but we tend to only feature it when there is a special event with other vehicles on site or an intensive tram service in operation. But for most of the year a two or three tram service runs for visitors and one of these days was sunny early Spring day on Friday 24th March. In this pictorial update we take a look at the two trams in service – Glasgow 22 and Leeds 180 – as well as taking a quick peek into the Workshop. Photos from Keith Chadbourne.

Leeds 399 pauses at Wakebridge with a northbound journey to Glory Mine.

Another view of 399 at Wakebridge, although this time we see it approaching the stop from the top deck of Glasgow 22.

On the lower deck of 399 we look towards the driver.

A driver’s eye view on board 399 as the tram approaches Glasgow 22 ready to exchange tokens for the single line section.

Another look at 399’s lower deck with Glasgow 22 just visible ahead.

One final view from this day in the Workshop which has taken on a London look. As well as long term restoration project London County Council 1 there is London County Council 106 and just visible on the left can be seen the Croydon Tramlink KLV, 058. (All Photographs by Keith Chadbourne)
