Leeds first totally enclosed trams entered service in the mid nineteen twenties. Amongst them was a small batch fitted with air brakes for use on steep hills. These were known to enthusiasts as "Beeston Air Brakes" although they did appear on other steeply graded routes. 399 dates from 1926. Now fully restored to the original chocolate and yellow livery it is seen passing the depot at Crich Tramway Museum
