Our transport collection covers almost 200 years of transport history and consists of a number of significant vehicles and objects.Collectively they illustrate how modes of transport had changed through time and how this affected the industrial and social development of Scotland.
Summerleeholds several significant trams in the collection. The trams that currently operate at Summerlee are the number ‘53’ and the ‘1017’. The growth of the rail and tram network allowed people to commute further from home for work and increased their opportunity for leisure activities such as ‘away days’. The local Airdrie and Coatbridge tramway operated between 1904 and 1956 before they were replaced by the more recognisable bus service.
