On 31 May this year Derby No1 was returned to Crich to prepare for its move to a new temporary home in Derby - Great Northern Classics - a new exhibition venue in an old Derby tram depot. The tram was at the museum for some restoratin work to be done prior to the move. The move took place on 21 August 2023 and after several hours of tricky manoeuvring is now in its place in the hall. It will be sitting below a glass walled viewing gallery and surrounded by many other classic vehicles.
The exhibition is due to open to the public in November 2023.
