This is one of the "Middleton bogie" trams introduced in 19333 the seventeen cars of this type were built specicially by LCTto serve the Middleton line They were designed by the Leeds general manager W. Vane-Morland They were very advanced for their time and lasted until the nineteen fifties. The tram looks as though it is the pre-war blue livery although the picture appears to have been taken in the early post war period

This tram could be number 255,which was the first middleton bogie tram supplied in 1933.It is picking up passengers at lingwell road,which used to be the terminus before the line was extended to join up with belle isle.The shops in the background are known localy as lingwell road shops,although they are actualy on middleton park road,the house to the right is on lingwell avenue,and the tram is bound for leeds via middleton woods,hunslet moor,and dewsbury road.

What a ride it was through Miggy Woods downhill all the way past Parkside Rugby Ground, It was like rideing the big dipper at Blackpool you had to be upstairs of course to get the full feel of the ride. It did not seem to slow down untill the sharpe left hand bend at Hunslet Moor.Happy Days

My uncle,Willi Shackleton,was a driver of the BLUE Miggie trams around the 19 50s.They were still blue in color at this time. I was courting my now wife,of 53 years,at the time.She lived in Middleton sissons lane and I in clovelly place. A great ride through the woods on this route. I wonder if Graham A Schofield has any memories of this route?
