Now preserved at Crich, Leeds Horsfield 180 is seen at the terminus of the Hunslet route in Thwaite Gate. It had a Brush 37/23 body on a Peckham P35 truck and entered service on 15th June 1931.
It was renumbered 189 in April 1958 exchanging numbers with the original 189 which had been damaged in a collision. It passed to the Tramway Museum Society for preservation and was moved to Crich on 30th January 1960. It was one of the thirty-eight Bramley Depot Horsfields which were fitted with bow collectors after 3rd December 1938, the last day of trolley pole operation in Leeds.
