Martin Miller and I along with two other TMS members went to Statfold Barn on Saturday, here is Burton & Ashby 14, in operation. This tram was built by Brush in 1906 for the B.&A. It operated for 21 years until 1927. It survived in the care of a model railway club until the 1970’s when it was selected for restoration and export to Detroit, USA to operate on a tourist line. When that closed in 2003, No.14 spent 11 years in store until put up for auction in 2014. It was successfully bid for by the owner of Statfold Barn and has been restored including the fitting of a battery package.
