In Pictures: First day of 2014 season at Crich

Yesterday we reported on the first day of the 2014 season at the Crich Tramway Village and now with huge thanks to Hazel Quarmby we are able to bring you a selection of images from the first day when Chesterfield 7 operated the first passenger journey of the year. As well as 7 these photos feature Blackpool 762, Leeds 180, Berlin 223 006-4 and Glasgow 1068.

Before Chesterfield 7 set off on the first trip of the year Blackpool 762 made an appearance on the mainline, seen here passing the Assembly Rooms. 762 remained on the depot fan the rest of the day.

Probably a view you will see fair amount in 2014: trams at the Glory Mine terminus where for the first time passengers will be able to alight. Here we see Chesterfield 7 having arrived with the first trip of the year.

As 7 made its way back to Town End it passed the other trams in service. This view is taken at Wakebridge and shows Leeds 180.

With Leeds 180 now back at Wakebridge and behind 7 Berlin 223 006-4 was the next tram to arrive.

And finally we see Glasgow 1068 with a healthy upper deck load showing a little bit of sunshine and an open top tram are an excellent match! (All photos: Hazel Quarmby)

    A defining season lies ahead. Arguably the most important season in its history. Just hope they continue on the recent trajectory of cohesive preservation. Working together. Would be a massive shame if they did anything to jeopardise this new feeling of momentum. Really hope we see them continue to work with other groups together in the national preservation pictures best interests.

    A Massive Year. Lets hope they keep the momentum up.

    Has Southampton 45 returned to service?

      Daniel – it would appear so! It has run on test to Glory Mine – see a separate article on the news page for more details.
