About the Tramcar Collection

The profiles that you can now read and explore for the Tramcar Collection have been developed and compiled by Library volunteer Jim Dignan, and they draw on a variety of source materials including official published documents, online sources and Tramway Museum Society internal records. The views and comments in the profiles do not necessarily reflect the policies or attitudes of the Tramway Museum Society or its officers.

Various people have generously assisted in this exercise by reviewing the text or contributing additional information or images and the Museum wishes to place on record its appreciation to those listed below. However, Jim Dignan accepts sole responsibility for any remaining errors.

There is always more to add to the story of each tram, as more information and documents come to light. If you do spot any errors or have any additional information about our tramcars, please feel free to get in touch so that we can ensure that the profiles are as accurate and informative as possible.

Likewise, if you have any additional information or photographs – particularly those featuring tramcars in the collection in their home territories or in the early days at Crich – we would like to hear from you.

Please send any comments or additional material to Jim Dignan at: collections@tramway.co.uk.
