Trams[ edit ] The earliest trams were single decker horsedrawn trams, but later purchases were double deckers, operated by Leeds Tramways Company.
The last of these ran in Steam trams were also used until full electrification. Throughout most of the twentieth century the tramway used a mixture of bus style and balloon tramsboth in double-decker formation.
Even when other cities were abandoning their tramways in the s, Leeds continued to modernise its system. Two prototype modern single-deck trams somewhat similar to those used in continental European cities were built in the early s, in particular two single deck trams painted purple for the coronation, was in operation on route 3 to Roundhay in - perhaps because this followed a segregated track along Roundhay Road to the popular attraction of Roundhay Park.
These two were a conventional air and magnetic braked vehicle and an all electric "vambac" car The latter resides in the Crich tramway museum.
In the early sLeeds purchased 90 "Feltham" secondhand trams dating fromfrom London Transport. By this period, Leeds tramcars were normally painted in red. Closure[ edit ] After the closure of the Leeds system on 7 November Sheffield became the last city in England operating trams closing inwith Glasgow Scotland the last in the UK closing in It is argued that the closure of the tramway was shortsighted, particularly given the fact that the majority of the network ran on reserved track, and as such did not interfere with the road system.
Leeds had one of largest and most advanced urban transport systems in the UK, and was developing new tramcars and opening new lines right until its closure.
The people of Leeds have now tried multiple times since the s to get their tramway back, with no success. The last remaining [Leeds horse tram no ] is now being restored by the Leeds Transport Historical Society.
There is an old electricity sub station used for the tramway on Abbey Road in Hawksworth. This was used as a concert hall from the trams closure untilwhen it was demolished. Queens Hall became a renowned punk venue and hosted other artists such as Elton John.
