Seriously ugly contraptions on the roof, heh!
Brian Walbey: I never have thought of pantographs as any more than functional Ray.
very well kept, presentation is like a souvenir postcard which I like a lot
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Chantal.

As soon as I saw it, I thought "foreign". Good to hear that those in wheelchairs can take a trip on the line; impossible in the old British trams, of course. Did these run with a trailer in Berlin, I wonder?
Brian Walbey: Yes that was a good conversion on the part of the Crich people. I seem to remember seeing film or photos of trams like this with a trailer.
It looks very narrow. nice trio of pictures Brian
Brian Walbey: Well I guess it is a lot newer than the old trams of yore Bill.
A very Bauhaus looking design!
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Tom.

Makes me think of Harry Lime and The Third Man - but I guess this is 30 years after - and Berlin not Vienna. It just has that dark European look to it.
Brian Walbey: I wish you hadn't said that Mike, now I've got the Harry Lime Theme going through my head smile It certainly looks very European compared with our trams doesn't it.

looking at your picture I can hear the noise of the 'Stra├čenbahn' while turning the corner -it is a lovely piece of my childhood in Berlin! And the 'Schaffner' selling or clipping a ticket belongs to the scenery, too. After the reunification West-German trams were used in Berin, too- I remember the yellow (?) colour of the trams.
Brian Walbey: I'm pleased to have reminded you of your childhood Philine, and I hope it is a happy memory. It's good to know that this is now being used to give disabled people the opportunity to ride on old trams.

These look a little more like coaches but thinner! Great to see smile
Brian Walbey: Yes they do but they are quite a bit younger than the old British trams at Crich.

A couple of good tram pictures Brian, Crich is a place rich in pictures, wouldn't you agree.
Brian Walbey: I like Crich, I must get to one of the re-enactment days like those you go to.
These look good, I must try and go there at some time.
