Every year the National Tramway Museum at Crich in Derbyshire has a ‘Starlight Spectacular’, the museum is open until 8pm enabling the trams to run in several hours of darkness. Special lighting effects are installed along the line including a light show on the facade of the Derby Assembly Rooms at the Town End terminus. Leeds tram no. 399  carries decorative lighting and Blackpool ‘Toastrack’ 166’s strings of coloured lightbulbs can be seen to good effect after dark. The 2016 event, held on 29th October, also celebrated Halloween, the Woodland Walk became a ghostly trail and ghostly music was used to good effect along the route. Very much a family event there was also a children’s funfair at Victoria Park and live music in the evening at the Red Lion Pub. This video shows the trams running along the  museum line during the day, arriving and departing the Town End terminus as darkness falls, and night time scenes at Wakebridge, Victoria Park and the tram depot. An intensive service was provided all day by the following trams: Blackpool 'Toastrack' No. 166, Blackpool 'Standard' No. 40, Leeds 'Beeston Air Brake' No. 399, Leeds 'Convert' No. 345, Blackpool 'Pantograph' car no. 167, Sheffield 'Roberts' car No. 510, Blackpool 'Jubilee' car No. 762, Liverpool 'Liner' No. 869 and the access tram Berlin No. 223 006-4.
