About Us

The Summerlee Transport Group (STG) was formed in 1988 in order to primarily support the operation of the trams and tramway at Summerlee Museum. The STG became a charity in Scotland in 1992 (SC020158).

What we do

The STG provides driver and conductor cover 4 days a week, you can learn to drive the trams at Summerlee on the Thursday night workgroup.
We also help with the maintenance and servicing on all the trams at the museum as well as tram and track cleaning, this is completed on one of our Thursday night workgroups.
