Heaton Park Tramway

The Manchester Transport Museum Society was formed in the early 1960s and has operated the Heaton Park Tramway since 1980. The first vehicle the Society obtained was a 1914 Manchester 'California' tram, number 765, which was rescued by the society from a farm near Huddersfield and restored with the help of the National Tramway Museum in Crich. This tram and others are run on a stretch of about 1 km of track through the park and their website gives details of when the service is operating. Here's a couple of photographs I took of 765 when I visited the park in June 1983.
