The tram trailer recently found in Chapman Road by builders Bob and Tony Pettitt when they were demolishing an old bungalow appears to have been identified.

We understand it is a tram trailer as seen in the photo at the bottom. It is very rare and it is 102 years old.

The car was a familiar site in Zelham Drive many years ago when the properties ran from Chapman to Zelham. Sorry about this very grainy picture. Hopefully we may get a better copy.

More pictures can be seen here.

The Tram trailer has been donated to the Transport Museum.
