1. Prague 180 and Blackpool 49 in 1969.
2. Halle 902 was built in Prague in 1969.
3 & 4. Recent pictures of Blackpool 298.
Halle 902 and Blackpool 298 have been the subject of recent comments on the internet so I thought I would add my suggestions.
Blackpool 298 should not be stored in the Exhibition Hall but consigned to a dark corner at the back of the depots for the next 5 years. During this time the Blackpool Tramway will be transformed and a rational policy for all the Museum's Blackpool exhibits can then be determined.
Halle 902 is unlikely to be an Access Tram. However it could be retained as a static exhibit and combined with Prague 180 to form the centrepiece of a dispay of Eastern European tramways. Some 17,622 Tatra T3/T4s were built, more than any other type of tram and whilst 902 is not suitable for running at Crich now, who knows what the situation will be in another 40 years.
