A day out – this time to Crich to the National Tramway Museum, now branded as Crich Tramway Village.
We were invited by the Engineering team at Crich who really take on some projects and make them good. There are some really first class restorations and rebuilds that come out of their workshops. The engineering team really welcomed us and made us feel extremely good about our own project. The comforting phrase after we showed them pictures of car No.31 was “We’ve seen a lot worse!”
A super day out and a really welcoming and friendly team – we had a great day and came home with much to think about.
Hopefully this will be the start of a long and fruitful friendship for all.
We also spent a great deal of time crawling over Leicester No.76 to learn more about the car. Unfortunately the pictures I took were all close up studies of various parts and I was so excited I forgot to take a good shot of the overall view of the car! Oh well – something to look forward to on another visit!
