Bow collectors

A fine day except for a shower at about 3:30 pm. The trams in service were Blackpool & Fleetwood 2, Paisley 68, LCC 106 with Berlin 3006 making about 3 trips and Leeds 602 being used for driver training.
The overhead wiring at Crich has to cater for a variety of different current collectors leading to compromises that would not be needed on standardised tramways. A new by-pass wire to lower bow collectors has been installed at Glory Mine. The pictures show 602's bow collector entering and leaving the by-pass.
You may need to enlarge the picture to see the detail. Posted by Picasa
