KW 014 Dearne Lytham car


These 30 trams (numbers 1-30) were built in 1924 by English Electric for Dearne District Light Railways.
The cars had 5 window bodies, with P22 8ft 6in trucks and very short platforms with entrances on each side.
The cars had longitudinal seating for 36 passengers, but 4 cars had 2+1 cushioned transverse seats fitted about 1927 which reduced their seating capacity to 31.
When Dearne tramways closed, four trams went to Lytham St Annes to become numbers 51-54 in their fleet. Lytham bought them for winter use and paid £500 for the lot. They were repainted in the zig-zag livery of bright blue and brilliant white, with red lead truck, fenders and lifeguards. During the winter of 1933/4 they operated on the Lytham – Gynn Square service but Walter Luff objected to their small carrying capacity and they were subsequently restricted to local services within Lytham St Annes. They were scrapped in 1937.
