As we’ve already seen, the 2022 season got underway at the Crich Tramway Village on Saturday 12th March with the early season so far seeing three trams in service on each day. These trams have been taken from a pool of six fully enclosed cars so far commissioned – Leeds trio 180, 345 and 399, Blackpool 630, Sheffield 510 (the latest to enter service on 27th March) and Liverpool 869.
