Tramways. Reopened 1980 incorporating

track in the UK
Heaton Park Tramway
The Heaton Park Tramway (LinkExternal link ) is a heritage tramway operating vintage trams as a visitor attraction within the Park. It is operated by the Manchester Transport Museum Society.

The Heaton Park Tramway was officially opened in 1980. The trams originally ran on the old Manchester Corporation Tramways spur from Middleton Road to the old tram shelter some 300 yards (270 m) inside the park. This has since been extended, by the use of track salvaged from elsewhere, to a new terminus near to the Boating Lake. The old tram shelter was also restored to form the centre of the society's operations.

The tramway currently (2015) has an operating fleet of 7 electric trams and one horse tram with several others in store or undergoing restoration LinkExternal link .
