Crich Museum - A Tram Selection 4/7

One for Philine as this is the ex German tram from the Berlin tram system No.84. This is the museum's Access Tram and has been specially adapted to carry wheelchairs. It underwent overhaul during winter 2011/12, with its orange and white livery replaced by cream and black and reverting to its original number of 223 006-4. Here she stands at the Crich village end of the network.

She is very compact, Brian.

Restoration has likely made her better than new.
Brian Walbey: Very much a European rather than British design of tram.

Il est beau aussi mais je préfère ceux qui sont colorés.
Brian Walbey: I guess this was the colour used in Berlin, whereas British trams were generally more colourful.
So small and beautiful Brian! I love it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, a very European looking tram.

Almost a mini tram isn't it
Brian Walbey: A very European looking one isn't it.

A good restoration job, Brian.

Quite different to the UK trams. It;s good that the less-abled can enjoy the ride through the museum grounds.
Brian Walbey: Very European looking isn't it, and an ideal tram for the conversion, what a good idea of there's.

Quite different, Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed they are different to our old trams, but it seems Philine used to travel on trams like this when she lived in Berlin.
I've not seen the like in this colour. Nice and shiny.
Brian Walbey: Quite a nice looking machine isn't it.

My first thought was: a German tram in its original look, Köpenick is a village of Berlin, well- known through the story or better comedy of the 'Hauptmann von Köpenick". I used such a tram when I lived in Berlin, and even today you can use such a tram in East- Berlin.
Brian Walbey: I wondered if this would be a type of tram you recognised Philine and I'm so pleased that it is, I hope any memories of travelling on one such as this are happy ones.
No doubt German technology has stood it in good stead! Or was it built in Britain for export?
Brian Walbey: As far as I can ascertain it was built in Germany Tom.
That's a smart little thing, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Quite different than the old trams from over here.
It is a handsome thing Brian
Brian Walbey: Quite different than the old trams from over here, and it seems Philine used to travel on trams like this when she lived in Berlin.
they were environmentally friendly but all of the wires above the tracks messed up the view of the sky Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: That still stands as a thought of course with modern trams and thousands of miles of electrified railway.
