BBC News – Last Dundee tram discovered as summer house in Perth garden

Horse-drawn tram

What is thought to be the last surviving Dundee tram has been found in a garden in Perth where it was being used as a summer house.

The horse-powered Dundee Corporation tram dates from the late 19th Century and is believed to be one of the first built for the city in 1887.

It has now been removed and taken to Dundee Transport Museum to be restored and added to the collection.

The museum already has the last surviving Aberdeen tram.

The Dundee tram was removed from service to be replaced by electric vehicles shortly after the turn of the century.
