After recently being a star attraction at the Crich Tramway Museum’s Tram Day event, Bournemouth Tram No. 85 was on the move again.

The workshop team was busy all day on the 23rd September moving 85 into its new place in the exhibition hall.

It will now be on permanent display in the Century of Trams display.

The move involed having to have a shuffle around with Glasgow 1282, Howth 10, Brussels 96 and Leicester 76 and then move 85 into the position where Leicester 76 had previously been located.

Bournemouth 85 is a great addition, and we would certainly recommend a visit if you are in the area.
