Seen at Oakwood on its way to Roundhay is Leeds Horsfield 183.
It was at this stop that Feltham 507, having run driverless from Roundhay on the 4th September 1952, crashed into the rear of Chamberlain 92 which had just been leaving the stop. 92 continued along the road ahead to the right and then along the side reservation for a total distance of about ¼ mile and was said to have reached a speed estimated at 40-50 m.p.h., before being brought to a halt by one of the passengers, both the driver and the conductor having being knocked unconscious by the impact. The Feltham finished against the pavement in front of the shops in Oakwood parade, having left the rails on the curve just after the stop. Neither tram ran in service again.
