Museum of Transport - Manchester
The Tram Depot houses a display area as well as part of the Society's fleet of trams and our workshop facilities in which restoration and maintenance are carried by the team of volunteers.

The display is made up of large photographs and many artefacts related to the history of trams in the Manchester area from the early horse trams right through to the current Metrolink system. There is an illuminated display showing how a tram works and also a working large scale model tramway constructed by two of our members.

A recent addition is a luxury for our maintenance staff in the form of a maintenance pit. Previously only those capable of limbo dancing could reasonably be expected to crawl underneath the cars to work on them unless the car body had been lifted.

Take a trip back in time with one of Britain's biggest collections of restored buses, coaches and trams at the Museum of Transport.
