Did you know that Dundee Museum of Transport is home to the last horse-drawn tram in Dundee? Horse Drawn Tram No. 24 was introduced into service in 1897 and taken out of service three years later, it ran from the main Post Office in town to Windsor Street at first, then later its route extended to the Westend cemetery along Perth Road. In 1900 Steam driven trams were introduced which lasted for an even shorter period of time before the electric trams took over, these stayed in service in Dundee until October 1956. Dundee Museum of Transport acquired this tram from a garden in Perth in 2014, and this year volunteers began its restoration. We are looking forward to giving it pride of place in our new home at Maryfield in 2024 and we need your help. Any small contribution to our Crowdfunder will help with the restoration of this important piece of transport history and take it home to Dundee's iconic Tram Depot.
