Visitors to Crich Tramway Village will soon be able to view memorabilia donated by Nottingham Trams Limited, operator of Nottingham Express Transit (NET).

The company has donated tram buffers and old tram signs to the Derbyshire attraction.

Trevor Stocker, operations manager at Nottingham Trams Ltd, said: “We’ve donated buffers that were originally installed at the Old Station Street tram stop and these are now in operation at the Glory Mine end of the preserved tram line.

“The fact we have a number of employees volunteering at the museum in their spare time also reflects NET’s commitment to preserving our transport heritage, while delivering the best possible service to customers, both now and in the future.”

Crich Tramway Village is now looking to feature the signs as part of a display to illustrate the history of trams in Nottingham, from the days of Nottingham Corporation Tramways to NET, filling a current gap in the history books.

Kate Watts, new curator at the museum, said: “It’s important that the museum continues to tell the national story of tramways by collecting items relating to the current systems in use.

“These signs from Nottingham (NET) are a welcome addition to the collection and the curatorial team are now planning how best to display them for visitors.”
