Tram 49

Tram 49

This Wolverhampton Corporation double decker tram was built in 1909. It is a typical Edwardian tramcar with an ornate lower saloon and open upper deck with traverse seating.

Originally equipped with the Lorain system - taking its power supply from studs in the road - it was later converted to run from overhead wires. The tram was painstakingly restored by the Black Country Museum Transport Group in 2004.

Entered service: 1909 

Withdrawn: 1921 

Manufacturer: , United Electric Car Company, Preston, UK, 1919
