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