Crich Tramway Museum 5/5

Blackpool Corporation Transport No.166

 

Known as a "toastrack" tram No.166 was once used by the BBC as an outside broadcast unit.

 

Our 4 year old Granddaughter wasn't too sure about riding on this one, I guess the size and noise overwhelmed her on this first time visit.

Taken at Crich Tramway Museum, Derbyshire, on 2nd.June, 2011.  You can find out all about the museum by clicking here

 

I'm going all "choccie box" again next week.

Looks like a tram that passed under a low bridge, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed you could say that Ray, but I don't think so somehow smile

LOL at Ray. It does look like someone/thing topped her off, Brian. smile I see it also has a Promenade run as well...quite versatile, I guess.
Brian Walbey: I guess a run in this along the prom at Blackpool on a sunny day would be quite nice Ginnie.

Actually these are very chocciebox type pictures Brian: they'd grace any package
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. Look here next week for proper "choccie box" pictures though.
The promenade sign is upside down! Nice postcard Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. I guess they could turn the signs over according to the journey.

What simple delights we seem to enjoy Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Chad, and this one's not far from home for me.
I think I would enjoy that tour
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you would Chantal, the length of the journey moving into the countryside part has some beautiful Derbyshire scenery to look at.

I can imagine the noise would be a bit overwhelming, maybe on your next visit. Which it looks like it would be worth doing smile
Brian Walbey: I think perhaps it was being in the middle of a lot of grown ups in this situation, she went on the Great Central Railway on Tuesday and was o.k.

I think the "Circular Tour" is a bit tongue in cheek; I hope none of the public were daft enough to expect one there. Let's hope that your granddaughter will be less scared on them when she's your age, Brian smile
Brian Walbey: I sure she'll be o.k.Alan, it was her first visit to somewhere like this. She was alright on a steam train at Loughborough this week.
Wonderful pictures. Great to see these ols trams.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed, thanks Frances.
I would like to have a tour with that nice train!
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a lovely ride of about a mile out into the Derbyshire countryside.
I can see where the toast-rack comes from!
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Tom, thanks for your comment.
A good series Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Many thanks John.
I'd love a ride on that Brian. Lovely pics
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Pamela.
Hi Brian, I enjoyed looking at these photos and especially like the way you have the three set up. Frances
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Francis. I will reply to your other email soonest, it will be a bit lengthy I'm afraid.
