I am very sorry to tell you that Boris was found dead in his home yesterday,m 24 February. I know many of you who read the blog will remember him from his early days at Crich Tramway Museum as part of the gang of 6 kids who ran riot and loved lighting bonfires. Some of you also used to enjoy the annual pantomime much more if Boris and Martin sat with you so you could boo as well!
I am lost for words.

Went to Nottingham this morning and there were two trams on test between Nottingham Station and Wilford allowing for some photos and video. Bitterly cold and blustery but a delight to see this great step forward. The improvement to the Meadows is a tribute to the City and Wilford Toll Bridge looks great with trams speeding over it.
Martin has two video clips on Youtube "Nottingham Tram Testing Times and Nottingham Tram Low Down"
The photos are at and around the Meadows Emankment Stop

Arriving early in the morning at Praça do Comércio, I felt something different.
Not a joke, just a film scene at Rua da Prata I noticed it when arriving at Praça da Figueira
Let´s go back on time, to the 30's of XX century at Brasil
Historic Portuguese vehicles, with Brasilian registration plates and tha red tram to Penha
It´s a shame they forgot some details, as the trolley
It was a sunny morning (7-8ºC), but Saint Peter forced the end of the sceene
The sun came back and the normal traffic was restablished by .
Installing a sticker on a tram destination box, is not common, and it is much more strange that the "homework" was beeing made out of Santo Amaro depot.
After the scene, left side sponsor panel was removed,
but the tram got back to work with the mysterious destination
