Box 40 - preparing for service

July 31st, 2014

There has been significant interest since our Blackpool & Fleetwood ‘Box’ 40 tramcar arrived back home with us last week; so here is an update as to the progress on preparing it for service at the Museum.

Once ‘Box’ 40 arrived it very quickly went into our workshop to be reassembled and prepared for service. An area for investigation was the wheel spin issues that were experienced with the tramcar in Blackpool when it was running as part of Tram Sunday on the 20th July.

Young Volunteers

July 29th, 2014
In July this year, Crich Tramway celebrates 50 years since the first electric tram carried passengers on the line, looking to the multitude of past achievements and the pioneering spirit of those early days. A lot of those early members were young and enthusiastic, spending their teenage years on a remote hillside with other like-minded people, working to create the Museum we all know today.

Out and about with Box 40 and Blackpool 167

Readers of our Blog will have seen that for the last few months we've been posting regular updates on this years overhaul work that has taken place with our Blackpool & Fleetwood 'Box' 40 tramcar. The project has been a joint one between ourselves the National Tramway Museum, and Blackpool Transport Services, who have had the tramcar on long term loan for a number of years. The project has been generously supported by a number of sponsors including the Flyde Transport Society, Dorlec Limited, Scotts Heavy Haulage and the Friends of 40 group.
