Wrexham's Last Trams

Why are we doing this?: 

Wrexham Heritage Service is investigating the future of its two historic tramcars and would like to know your views.

These trams are the only known survivors of Wrexham’s fleet of 10 trams purchased from Brush Electrical Engineering Company. Built in 1903, they ran between Wrexham town centre and Rhosllanerchrugog until 1927, when they were replaced by buses and the tram fleet was sold.  

The trams are currently in open storage at Bersham Colliery.  They are in poor condition, and the Heritage Service has therefore appointed consultants to advise on their future preservation. 

A draft document has been produced which investigates the history of the trams, the impact they had on Wrexham and their historical significance, before describing their current condition.

The document has highlighted a number of different possibilities for the preservation and future display of the tramcars, as well as how these can be achieved.   

For further details of the options for preservation and future display of the tramcars, please see the attached document below.

A zoom seminar will be held on Wednesday 31st March, 7.00pm - 8.30pm where the consultants and museum officers will provide further information about the feasibility study and its findings, and the different options being investigated.

What do we want to know?: 

We want to identify preferred options for the future of Wrexham's last trams, and how these options could be achieved.
