This kit is of the English Electric Bogie Cars, numbers 758-769. The bodies were built by the Edge Lane works in 1931 / 1932 and the electrical parts and monomotor trucks were supplied by English Electric.
Most of the cars were repainted in green and ivory and the destination boxes were changed to the new three screen type.
In the late thirties / early forties, they were reconditioned to varying degrees and mounted on EMB lightweight bogies.
Car 762 is preserved by the Merseyside Tramway Preservation Society at the Wirral Transport Museum.
The kit can be built to represent either the original or reconditioned cars and includes both upper and lower deck seats.
