311103 at Summerlee311103 at Summerlee311103 at Summerlee 23.12.17 Summerlee Heritage Park in Coatbridge has Scotland's only working heritage tramline.   The tramline is about 1/2 mile long and single tracked throughout.   There have 4 trams:

  • Dusseldorf 392, which has a wheelchair lift and sees most use out of the fleet
  • Glasgow 1017, a small single decked ex Glasgow Standard car which was formerly a double decker before being reduced to a single decker to allow it to operate on a route with a low bridge.
  • Lanarkshire 53, an open topped double decker which used to run to Wishaw, Motherwell, Hamilton, Bellshill, Larkhall and Uddingston.
  • Glasgow 1245, a Glasgow Coronation double decker, currently being restored

The short line heads from the main entrance round to a replica coal mine and miners row.    Also at the end of the line is former Blue Train 311103, which the motor coach and one of the driving trailers from the set is on display.
