Hi All,
The wife and I thought we would make the most of the mild weather and get the children out of the house for some fun in the sun. While we were there I happened to see one of the old trams from years ago back up and running. I was great to see as I remembered these as a child myself.

It is a country park on the outskirts of Manchester called Heaton Park. Why do you ask Bob?

Thought I might go and have a look one day.   I remember riding the last tram to run in London a couple of years ago. ;D

Good angle.   That's the better of the two in my view John.

We have trams in Nottingham.   Cost millions, bugger up the traffic and are generally a pain in the butt.

I just love these old ones, they look so much more cozy and welcoming. Why do they have to make the new, "modern" ones so cold and sterile... Second shot is nice  :)
