History: Horse Tram No.48 was built in 1935 as a batch of five (two Buses and three Horse Trams) by the Vulcan Engineering Company based in Southport, and lived a fairly average life until it’s withdrawl from service in 1976.

No.48 was then acquired by the M.E.R in 1980 for intended use as a waiting shelter at Ballaglass, as a replacement for the aging wooden example at the site. This however did not occur, and it was broken up at Derby Castle in 1982.
