    Cool Liverpool's last tram...

    hello folks...

    it has come to my attention that the last tram that rumbled accross the streets of Liverpool has ben spotted in a transport museum in Boston USA.

    it is in need of repair and i for one would like to see it back in Liverpool and restored to its full glory in time for the ')* celebrations....

    it is a part of the city's history so i think that we should make some sort of representation to the museum to ask can it be returned to our great city....

    thanks everyone...

    There are restored trams elsewhere, see Rons tramsite.

    The tram you refer to in the U.S.A. is in Maine, not Boston, It would probably cost way too much to make it worthwhile transporting.

    Not all of Merseyside’s trams have disappeared, National Museums Liverpool hold an old Liverpool tram in their street transport collection. The tram had formed part of the Large Objects Museum in the 1980's but following its closure it went into storage. Although not currently on public display it’s hoped some of the collection will form part of the planned new Museum of Liverpool at the Pier Head.
