Before eBay foreign cards were only available while visiting abroad.

Hi David,

Speaking of abroad, while not postcards,

try these 3 photos from the National Tramway Museum at Crich in the UK.










and





Photos were from 2018.

We just happened to be there for the 100th birthday of a tram from Prague.

A lot more stuff was running that day than usually is out on display or running.

Great photos, John.


I have always wondered where the center of gravity is in a double-decker,

and if all the patrons on the upper deck were to shift to one side,

would the car topple over ?


Again, thanks for adding these great photos.

Regards, Dave L.

It must have been quite a ride in Montreal's first trolley,

to give it the name "Rocket."

I always liked this little work car,

and based on this photo decided to build something similar.

The parts are in storage.
