Scarborough had an excellent network of trams servicing the town from 1904 to the 1931. Edumundson Electricity Company put down 5 miles of line by 1904. On the first two days fiften 'cars' carried 22,000 passengers on a 1p or 2p route. The tramlines never made it around the castle headland. A famous accident occured when a tram ran backwards and crashed through the roof of the Aquarium ballroom. Nobody was killed. The whole network was brought and scraped in 1931 by the United Bus Company. Most tramlines were taken up but a few still emerge from the tarmac today, see below.
