483006 departs from Ryde Esplanade.
483006 gets underway from Ryde Esplanade on the next stage of its journey with the 16.07 Ryde Pier Head to Shanklin on July 5th 2015. The abandoned Pier Gates terminus of the tramway is visible of the right of this scene, a sad sight - the crowds of the past now a distant memory. Closed in 1969 when the tramway was replaced by a shuttle service 'locked in' to the former Up line (The shuttle is now also a memory). The two single unconnected tramway tracks were operated by a pair of 2-Coach diesel trams.
