This tram was built in the 1920’s for the S.T.I.B. and then was modernised in 1959. In 1988, it came to Summerlee and was the first tram to be operated there. In 2004 the tram was vandalised and had to be scrapped. The trucks, motors and electrics were sold to a tramway museum at Birkenhead and are intended to be attached to a tram there.
About this Series 9000
the coachwork dates from 1960, the underframes, the electromechanical equipment and a major part of the interior fittings originate from a series of cars built between 1929 and 1933. Series 9000 was the first type of tram allowing the driver to collect the fares, without a conductor aboard.
