The Carstairs House Tramway

Post by rogerfarnworth »

The July 1962 issue of ‘Modern Tramway’ included a short article about the Carstairs House Tramway, written by Christopher T. Harvie. It appears that it was the first permanent installation of its type in Scotland. ...
Wikipedia says that the Carstairs House Tramway operated between Carstairs railway station and Carstairs House between 1888 and 1895. Railscot has slightly different information. It indicates that the tramway opened in 1889 as an electric tramway but reverted to being horse-powered by 1896. It continued operating in this way until 1925.
