Leeds City Transport 202, a 'Horsfield' tram built by Brush/Leeds City Tramways in 1931. Behind it are Leeds 601 (one of the two railcars built in 1952), Glasgow 1055 (ex-Liverpool 'Green Goddess'), Sheffield 513 (in the "Last Tram" livery) and Swansea & Mumbles 2.
202 was purchased by Leeds City Museum and the others by the Middleton Railway Preservation Society in the hope of creating a working tramway in Middleton, Leeds following the closure of the Leeds and Sheffield tramways. The exposed location and attacks by local vandals soon took its toll and most vehicles had to be scrapped. The only survivors are Sheffield 513, now at Beamish Open Air Museum, and Glasgow 1055, now at the Crich museum in its original Liverpool 869 form.
