Leeds Mercury (12/Jan/1883) – The Huddersfield Tramway System


Yesterday the engine and tram-car belonging to the Huddersfield Corporation were brought into use for the conveyance of passengers between Fartown and Lockwood. The tram commenced running at Fartown at nine o’clock in the morning, and left there every hour during the day, starting from Lockwood at the half-hour. Young horses were somewhat alarmed at the engine and car, and one horse suddenly backed the vehicle to which it was attached against a lamp-post, knocking it over. Great numbers of passengers travelled between the two termini.
