TRAM UPDATE July 2018


We are delighted to report a major step forward with the restoration of Ryde Pier Tram Car 2. Now fully fitted with new engine, air-braking system and long awaited springs, at the end of June the chassis came to life and wheels turned under its own power for the first time since 1972, albeit on a set of rollers! This was followed by a period of testing all the systems, which proved to be satisfactory. 

This phase of the restoration can now be considered complete and in the last few days it has been moved to Alan Keef’s bodyshop, where work on rebuilding the body will start shortly.
