I managed to visit QMC area yesterday whilst the weather was reasonable. Shadow service in full swing with the sharp curve at the bottom of the ramp towards the City Centre causing a lot of wheel/rail noise.

Nottingham remains an interesting place with the new shadow service in operation and there is a certain irony as the High Road Central College is opposite the former HQ of Barton Buses that supplied the vehicles for our school buses to Long Eaton. It can't be long before the whole system is open to passengers.

|Tom Barton (founder of the famous bus company and opponent of trams) would turn in his grave at the sight of trams running past his former main bus garage in Chilwell.
