Crich Tramway Village, Victoria Park Tram Stop
Ex-Glasgow Corporation "standard" car number 1068* which dates from 1919 passes a 1934-built ex-Blackpool Corporation boat car number 236 at the Victoria Park tram stop.

* This tram originally entered service as number 68 in the Paisley and District Tramways fleet which was later taken over by Glasgow Corporation. It was originally restored to the Paisley colours after being acquired for preservation but, in 2012, it was repainted to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the closure of the Glasgow tramway - the last traditional tramway system to operate in a major British city.
Crich Tramway Village and National Tramway Museum

Crich Tramway Village is the recreated historic village that is the setting for the National Tramway Museum in Derbyshire. The village is set around a period street, with several re-built buildings from all over the country, including the façade of the former Assembly Rooms from Derby and the Red Lion Inn from Stoke-on-Trent. The site has been developed at a derelict limestone quarry.

The museum has over 60 tramcars from various locations; about seventeen vehicles are currently in operational condition, with more on display or being restored. Every operating day, the museum selects between two and four trams and operates them over its line to Glory Mine, via Wakebridge. The village also includes a cafe, old-style sweetshop, and the museum's tram depots. There is also a re-created Victorian park, children’s play area, woodland walk and sculpture trail.
