The MTPS is one of the UK's most important tramway preservation societies, with a major collection of restored and working vehicles. The society's trams run as part of the Birkenhead Heritage Tramway. To learn a little more about us, click Here.
If you are interested in vintage transport and have an eye for history then being a member of the society can offer a number of benefits. The modest annual subscription entitles members to travel free on the Wirral Heritage Tramway (on production of a current membership card). This also brings free admittance to the National Tramway Museum at Crich in Derbyshire (except for special days); all members receive a lively and informative newsletter four times a year to keep them abreast of any new developments while our handy website is always kept fully up-to-date with the latest news. If you enjoy working with your hands (or are merely handy with a polishing rag!) you can join the camaraderie of volunteer working parties and help keep our historic tram fleet on the road!
We welcome volunteers to help with our events, such as celebrations of local tramway anniversaries, plus our annual Santa Special in December. The annual Wirral Bus and Tram Show is a highlight that attracts visitors from all over Britain.
All members are also encouraged to participate in the activities of the Transport Museum,which is owned by Wirral Borough Council, and operated by the MTPS
