Ovenden tram in­ci­dent

Halifax Courier - - Local Life -

Whit­sun Satur­day night and ev­ery­one want­ing an en­joy­able night out in town. The tram from Ovenden is packed to ca­pac­ity and trundling down to Lee Bridge. It sud­denly turns over. For­tu­nately very few are in­jured and noone is killed. The fear is that it could have been a replica of the North Bridge ac­ci­dent or the one down Bolton Brow in Sowerby Bridge. No-one could ex­plain why it hap­pened and it en­cour­aged fur­ther spec­u­la­tion on the choice of a rather nar­row gauge track for Hal­i­fax con­sid­er­ing the num­ber of hills and bends trams had to ne­go­ti­ate.
