Eastbourne Electric Tramway BHE442, a Leyland Tiger PS1 ancilliary vehicle. New to Yorkshire Traction (781) in 1949 with a Brush B32F body, it was withdrawn by them in 1960 and sold to the ETC who cut it down into this form.
This miniature tramway (owned by Modern Electric Tramways Ltd. and opened in 1953) had already closed down by the time I visited Eastbourne in 1970, and most of it had already been moved 100 miles westward to Devon to create the Seaton Tramway, which continues to this day. The PS1 was still awaiting its move, and is seen here at the Crumbles depot. It did soon make the journey and was recorded by the PSV Circle as still there in 1977, but I wonder if it survived ?
