Shipley Glen Railway
The Shipley glen tramway runs through the popular visitor attraction of Shipley Glen, constructed in 1895 with two open carriages. The trams were rebuilt in 1928 during the conversion to electric power and again in 1955 and 1990. The tramway closed in 1966 after a small accident but was saved from closure in 1969. The tramway again closed in 1982 and it was extensively repaired.The Tramway is now run by volunteer Trustees and volunteers from the local public. SGT is owned by Bradford Council and the Tustees have taken a 125 year lease on a full repair and maintenance basis,
