Centenary 1905-2005
Centenary 1906-2006

 
On the 15th July 1905, the first tests of
 
the newly built Hastings Tramcars took
 
place around Hastings, in preparation for
 
the public opening on the 31st July 1905.
 
Much of this testing took place using Car
 
10, the first car to be completed at
 
Silverhill.
 
To commemorate this centenary, the
 
club organised a tour of Hastings in the
 
1928 Trolleybus, 'Happy Harold' for the
 
club's members. The tour was a great
 
success, partly due the good weather.
 
The tour ended at the Hastings Old Town
 
Museum where a special display about the
 
Hastings Trams was being displayed
