Edinburgh trams were not electrified until the nineteen twenties being the last cable network in the UK. The corporation adopted a progresive policy towards new trams which resulted in the Edinburgh standard car of the nineteen thirties which were also built after the war. One of these survives at the Tramway Museum at Crich, 35 which dates from 1947.
Like its near neighbour Glasgow, Edinburgh adopted a corner route number display so passengers knew which tram was theirs in a line of cars.
