When I arrived at Crich this morning I was delighted to see that Leeds 345 had been brought out for a photographer - seen lying on the ground on the upper pic. The second pic shows Peter Malone at the controls. The third shows the other side of the tram and the fourth the end of the line at Town End.
For pictures of the official 'launch' of 345 on Saturday 1st April click here.

There are two shops at the National Tramway Museum. The upper pic shows 'Barnett's Sweet Shop' which was purpose built for the Museum, initially serving as a book shop and then as a general souvenir shop. The lower pic shows 'Scothern & Williamson' which was the blacksmith's shop for the mineral railway before becoming a book and souvenir shop for the Museum.
