Former London tramcar 1858 and former Amsterdam tramcar 474 at the East Anglia Transport Museum, Carlton Colville – 6 July 1986 (38-17)
Sunday 6 July 1986 – East Anglia Transport Museum, Carlton Colville, Lowestoft

Left is former London tramcar 1858 new in 1930. Bodywork by English Electric.

Right is former Amsterdam tramcar 474 new in 1929. Bodywork by Beijnes.

As I write, 35 years have passed by since I took this photograph but both cars are still part of the museum stock.

Do the trams from the continent all run on the same voltage as the UK trams?

Good question Graham but I'm sorry I don't know the answer.

Since this is a small scale running museum with the different exhibits running on the same tracks and wiring I can only think the answer is that they do run on the same voltage. Whether the Amsterdam car needed conversion prior to running at Carlton Colville again I cannot say.

Thanks Jaap. Already many years ago. The Amsterdam car is an unusual exhibit at this museum.
