That's already been mentioned, and argued about. However, there is the
Crich tramway Museum which is electrified...


... with overhead wires, not third rail And it isn't a preserved
line, it's in a former quarry. There are lots of museums with overhead
wires -tramway and trolleybus.


Well, of course. ;-)

Anyway, you say "lots" of others. I can think of Beamish, but then I run
out of ideas. What do you have in mind?


Off the top of my head,,, The Black Country Museum, Sandtoft
Trolleybus Museum, East Anglia Transport Museum, the Birkenhead
tramway system.

Actually you and I are both slipping OT as none of these are strictly
preserved lines, but working trolleybus and tram operations that
commenced after conventional 600V DC operation stopped. There are
others that have kept going primarily as tourist attractions
(enthusiasts are never able to operate preserved transport without
non-enthusiast tourist income). Despite lots of wonderful preserved
lines, I can only think of two that operate ordinary passenger
services... Blackpool and ISTR some Kent/Sussex rail lines do school
services.

My fire extinguishers are ready for the flames!

But AFAIR none of these use third rail electrification, which is the
point at issue.

Amberley is an excellent museum, with much live operating action but I
can't think of any electric traction there (wires or third rail). IMO
it's one of the best family days out in southern England.

Nothing that moves in the rolling stock sense unless you count the
petrol electric Southdown bus.

ISTR though that they have some exhibit to do with the operation of
Southern Railway Substations

And somewhere when I visited there were a couple of lenghts of narrow
gauge track with a third rail. probably from Volks railway . Meant to
ask someone .
