Details: Derek visited the former Brixton tram shed on 12th October 2021 and was given permission to take some photos inside. Located a couple of hundred yards north of Brixton bus garage, neither is really in Brixton, being nearer to Streatham Hill. The tram depot was operationally closed when trams ended in 1952, although the location was retained for the storage of buses. It was later sold (or leased?) and was used as a car dealership for a time, before eventually returning to bus use in about 2003, when Arriva started outstationing some buses from the main Brixton garage. More recently the garage has been modified with electric charging points for use by new BYD/ADL double-deck electric buses for use on route 319 (class EA). Two of the EA buses can be seen in this view looking towards the front entrance, along with HV1, an early (2009) hybrid double-decker which is believed to no longer be in passenger use. Note that the tram tracks are still present.
