In 1954 the last of the familiar green and cream electric trams disappeared from the streets of Christchurch. But on February 4, 1995, some 41 years after their demise,
two of the trams returned to the city streets after being fully restored and refurbished. Christchurch Tramway Limited commissioned this card to celebrate the event.

This card was overprinted on unsold stock of the Healthy Schools Netball card.
The card was issued in a small Commemorative Folder, illustrated below.

This card was also included in the Collector Pack AdCards Volume Ten NZ-CP-43 and was overprinted on the reverse with Collectors Issue 1995 or International Collectors Issue 1995, if included in the International Pack.
