LOVE them or loathe them, trams are making a comeback, with cities around the world building new light rail transport systems.

You can see a large collection of trams of all shapes and sizes at Crich Tram Museum in the UK, where an exhibition takes you on a journey through 100 years of tramway development, from 1860-1960.

Horse drawn trams, steam trams and electric trams are all on display and you can ride on restored old trams along a section of former limestone quarry track.

The Mail By Tram exhibition reveals how, in the early 20th century, tramcars became mobile post boxes, carrying and delivering letters and parcels.
