Ten tram cars were built for the tramway, six were "Winter" cars with enclosed lower decks though were used all year. The surviving tram, number 4 which is now at Crich Tramway Museum, was one of these. As built it was fitted for conduit current pickup and had a single Elwell Parker electric motor with chain drive to the axles. The tram was very similar to horse tram cars, it didn't have a truck but axles carried in trunnions bolted to the sills .
Later it was fitted with a truck and a pair of more powerful GEC GE52 motors. It was given a trolley for current collection from overhead wires which is the method the Corporation standardised on. Number 4's passenger service life was fairly short, it was converted to a works car in 1899 and continued in this role until the 1930s when it was placed in storage. It was preserved and restored to running condition in the 1960s.
It has now been restored back to close to it's original condition and can be run using a battery powered motor.
