Liverpool 762 in Shore Road
A Mersey Tramway Preservation Society tram, running on the Birkenhead Heritage Tramway, part of which runs along Shore Road.

One of 12 bogie cars built in 1931/2 at Edge Lane Works, 70 seat car 762 was originally fitted with English Electric bogies and concealing valances. It was rebuilt in 1939 with EMB lightweight bogies and painted in a green livery.
When it was withdrawn in 1955, the lower saloon became a bowling green clubhouse at Newsham Park.

By 1977 it had become derelict but was rescued by Society members. Restoration began at Green Lane depot two years later, but due to lack of accommodation it had to be stored in the open for 18 months. Work was continued at Speke and Princes Dock, but was suspended at Lairds while Birkenhead 20 was finished. On February 6 2000, 762 was placed on the rails at Pacific Road, and in 2001, 762 was running in service on the heritage line, looking just as it did in the 1930s.
