After more than 40 years out of use, the single line access to/from the tram depot via Foxhall was used during January and February 2005.
Stunning early morning footage of Centenary cars leaving depot and travelling along this route to gain access to the main line. Late night coverage of the trams as they return to depot. See 641 towing 644! Each section of the route is shown.
