Over the past couple of weeks our overhead line team have been making good use of the fine weather to install new trolley wire round our relaid Glory Mine terminus.
All the major installation is now completed and we are focusing on final positioning of components. Unlike a modern system, all our tramcars are slightly different, so testing and snagging may continue over the next couple of weeks before the terminus can be fully opened.
Trams will still be running to Glory Mine, but passengers will not be able to alight there due to trams stopping slightly short of the area for safe exit by passengers.
If you wish to visit the Sherwood Forester’s Memorial (Crich Stand) you can visit this by taking the road up to the memorial off Plaistow Green Road, however, the memorial is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
We hope you can bear with us a little while longer while we complete this important project to future proof the operation of our heritage tramway.
