Bah Humbug!

Best wishes for 2012 to all my readers.

I really do expect to be home in January and to shake the cobwebs from my camera.

Best wishes again - Ricard Lomas

Nottingham - go ahead for new consortium
I still find it difficult to imagine trent barton as a tram operator although their head office is still on the site of the Notts & Derby depot at Langley Mill.

Crich 1989

Dear Mr. Lomas,
although we havent met (as far as I have seen on my enclosed pictures) and I was till some weeks ago an anonymous reader of your blog, I like to send my best wishes for your recovery.I have shot this series of slides (rotting in my archive) at the end of the eighties on my short visit in Crich - some of them on my walk up from Whatstandwell station. I hope, those photos will appear cheery in your regards and good recovery

Kath Lomas (and other friends)

I am still in hospital. Pancriatitis is nasty disease and I have been kept alive by machines but am beginning to feel stronger.
Older TMS members will remember my wife Kath - perhaps driving 812 wearing a tin hat one Extravaganza.
I would like to publically thank her for coming to see me every day for 6 weeks and all her help and support.
I would also like thank all the friends who have sent me cards and emails

Whenever I feel strong enough I will try to update this blog more often.

Best wishes to
