|Preserving Glasgow Tram No.488
An approach was made by the London Trolleybus Preservation Society to repatriate 796 and it returned to England on the 6th October 2010 and following restoration, now operates at the East Anglia Transport Museum. A rationalisation of AMTUIR's vehicles led to them offering 488 to the EATMS. This was accepted and with the help of a bequest from Peter Mitchell, transportation of the tram to England and its full restoration was possible.
The 488 web site has been created with the intention of following restoration progress and to provide background information on the life and times of the tram during its long working career. The Ffestiniog Railway will carry out restoration work and have already taken delivery of the lower half of the tram. The upper deck will follow in due course.

After almost a year off-line, the Blackburn Transport NET is BACK under a new, though actually it's original, name OLIVE GREEN & IVORY. The site has been off line for a while now but it is back and is bigger and, hopefully, better than before. The format has changed for the Photo Galleries but with over 3,000 images to re-scan, the PHOTO & VIDEO LIBRARIES are currently unavailable but will slowly re-appear. Anyway the rest of the site is there, so enjoy!
|Ron's Liverpool Tram Site
Liverpool had one of the most interesting tramway systems in Britain which operated up until the 14th September 1957. After the second world war, the city of Liverpool foolishly decided to follow a fashion already set by many other British cities and abandon the tram in favour of buses. This was despite having an extensive tramway system in place with much of the track work running in the "central reservations" of main roads connecting the city and its suburbs. Liverpool also had a large fleet of "streamliner" trams which had been quite ahead of their time when built in the 1930's and which still looked fairly modern in the 1950's. Visit the site to find out more.

In 1883 Magnus Volk opened an electric powered railway along the seafront at Brighton. Although not quite the first example of electric traction in the world it was certainly the first proper electric railway in Britain. Today it holds the esteemed position of being the oldest remaining operating electric railway in the world.
