Return from Australia - 2

We had a wonderful time in New Zealand and Australia and I would like to thank the various tramway museums that made us so welcome. I was impressed by their achievements often with far less resources than we have at Crich. Pictures can be seen by clicking the link on the right.

Return from Australia

Today I made my first visit to Crich after our trip to Australia and NZ to attend a Membership Committee meeting. Afterwards I took a few quick pictures but hope to take a few more later in the week.
1. Cardiff 131's underframe. The truck has also be re-assembled and I will try to get a picture of this soon.
2. Look at the date but I understand from Contact that work is now in hand to rectify this.
3. The only tram I saw in service was Glasgow 22.
