It is an elegant vehicle, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes well looked after, I like the curtains at the windows.
I love the colors of this tram!
Brian Walbey: Yes so do I, these trams are obviously well looked after.
This old and superb tram comes out very nicely on the modern background Brian!
Brian Walbey: I know which looks the nicest to my eye Richard, and it isn't the building!

Super vehicle, Brian
Brian Walbey: Perhaps you might get to ride on it one day Lisl, you could go in one direction on the tram and the other alongside the river on foot.

Old fashioned isn't it
Brian Walbey: It certainly is but very well turned out.
Delightful isn't it Brian?
Brian Walbey: It certainly is and very well turned out.
I love these old trams, Brian. Grown-up toys. smile
Brian Walbey: Grown up toys for girls and boys Ginnie.
In San francisco this is an event
Brian Walbey: The trams there are of course world famous aren't they.
Nice shot with the guard in attendance with hands clasped.
Brian Walbey: At first I thought the guard would be in the way but as it turned out he was nicely placed.
great livery. i would have liked to see the pantograph Brian, but i guess you were going for the feet of the onlooker. but a superb shot nevertheless.
Brian Walbey: Yes it has been well preserved. They don't have pantographs, the pole on the roof goes up to be in contact with a single overheard electric cable. At each end of the journey the pole is moved round so it is always trailing in the direction of travel.

What I liked was that you can sit in Costa and watch the trams come and go smile These are proper trams; not like those things in Sheffield and Manchester, etc wink
Brian Walbey: We actually found a nice little coffee shop in Seaton just down the road from the tram station. I quite like the trams in Nottingham, indeed the network is being extended at the moment.
A lovely way to get around, long gone.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Suzanne, fortunately we are not far away from the National Tram Museum at Crich in Derbyshire and go there sometimes. http://www.tramway.co.uk/

I love those old trams you can still find in Berlin. Many thanks, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Yes I like trams of all sorts Philine. I can remember riding the trams in Stuttgart when we went there in the early 70's, I recall we rode out to the zoo and back and saw a Wombat there, such a cute little animal, the only time we've ever seen one, fancy me remembering that.
love this image Brian... fine colours here and classic
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ronky.
Great nostalgia value.
Brian Walbey: Yes quite a good looking tram John.
Of course you're right. I stand corrected, Brian, thank you.
Brian Walbey: That's o.k.Ayush, part of SC.to me is learning lots about all sorts of things from all over the place.
I must put this on my 'to visit' list. It looks interesting.
Brian Walbey: Yes worth a visit but I hope you get better weather than we did.
