Crich Museum - A Tram Selection 7/7

Ex Glasgow Corporation tramway No.1068 and ex Blackpool Corporation Tramways No.40 pass at the stop for Victoria Park, a pleasant area just off to the right of the picture. I hope over three weeks I’ve given just a flavour of what Crich Tramway has to offer. If you live in the U.K,and are passing through the East Midlands it really is a good day out for all ages, men and women alike, and, dare I say it, it would be a great place for a SC.get-together (hint hint)

Toujours aussi beau, j'aime le premier orange et bleu. Joyeuses Pâques !
Brian Walbey: Happy Easter to you also Martine. Some of the trams are really colourful.

I think you have used up all the photo-opportunities, Brian. smile
Brian Walbey: Not quite all Ray, but we were lucky to visit on a day when there weren't too many people about.

It is all very nostalgic Brian. I will have to work out how possible it is to do a day trip from Bath
Brian Walbey: Yes a fine place to visit, but a long way from you, about 160 miles each way, a bit too much for a day I would think.
It would indeed Brian
Brian Walbey: It's a shame it's quite a long way from you folks over in the west, Chris agreed with you but it is about 160 miles each way from his place, too much for one day really.
Wonderful and colourful Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, some of these old trams are quite spectacular in their colourings.
Ha ha. I like your hint hint.
Brian Walbey: Sadly whilst it is just over an hour from us for people like Chris and Bill it is a lot of driving in a day unless they wanted to stay overnight somewhere.
That's a fine idea for an SC outing, Brian - then I might actually get there!
Brian Walbey: I might think about putting it forward as an idea one day, sadly it is quite a long journey for people such as Chris and Alan.

Yep.. an SC meeting there would be very welcome! Please arrange for the same weather and the same lack of crowds smile Please excuse me for saying so but I always think of Crich being in the Peak District rather than the East Midlands.
Brian Walbey: Once you get over the delights of 24th.June you can go where you like during the week and, apart from school holiday times, nearly everybody will be 'oldies' just like us enjoying their retirement away from the madding crowd! I guess I think of Crich as East Midlands because both BBC East Midlands and ITV Central cover local news for that area of Derbyshire, indeed right up to Matlock and beyond sometimes.
I have actually enjoyed looking at your Tram photo's! (I know, I know!) They are.... dare I say... cute?! smile
Brian Walbey: You may say cute Elizabeth, no doubt you have seen the trams at Blackpool, which is more than I have. if you and Frank ever venture down our way we will take you to Crich, I'm sure you would enjoy it.
