These were eventually replaced by new trams, of the Improved Standard design (though using the original trucks in most cases), 112 re-entering service in 1942. These were always known as "war cars" or "war damage replacement cars". 112 lasted until the end of the system on 8th October 1960.

Sheffield 76 and 522 at Owlerton at the head of a line of ‘Football Specials’ waiting for the match to end. 76 and 522 are lined up on Parkside Road; this was officially listed as a “siding”, but linked the Wadsley Bridge and Middlewood routes. It was used solely to park “football special” trams. By the time the photos were taken, the Middlewood route had been converted to buses (1954) and the track either lifted or tarred over, so Parkside Road really was a siding!

The Wicker in Sheffield with Robinson Great Central C13 loco 67424 passing over the railway bridge. 67424 was withdrawn in February 1959 but the picture is from a box of undated railway prints previously thought to be around 1954-55. However a few tram pictures exist dated 6 May 1958 so I'll go with that. Perhaps one of the cars, sorry perhaps the one car in the picture will help the dating. The date is a Tuesday so it's not during the rush hour!!
