South Shields No.44

No.44 was part of an order for 5 totally enclosed bogie trams supplied in 1921 by English Electric Co. of Preston. It ran until the system closed in 1946 when it was saved for preservation by Sir George Foxwood-Smythe Snr. The model was scratch built from two Blackpool Dreadnaught kits and was fitted with a shortened Bachmann Brill chassis.
