Glasgow Tram

Glasgow car 812 was built in 1900. Originally it was open topped with open platforms. It was reconditioned several times during it's 60 years in service. Glasgow used colour coded upper decks to distinguish various routes. This made the routes easy to spot whist waiting iof several of them were in a queue. The colours were, red, green, blue, yellow or white.

Car 812 can be seen in the National Tramway Museum at Crich in Derbyshire in May 1968. The 59 seater arrived at the museum on 13 August 1963. The last Glasgow trams ran in September 1962.
