By the by, I notice that the last time we corresponded it was concerning a query I had concerning the identity of the Westerns at the 1972 Laira Open day. I am delighted to say that I found my own copy of the event programme for that same event, almost 50 years ago now. Just for fun,
Wishing you well, Andrew Todman
Weymouth Street Tramway
A quote from BBC Teletext :- A 155 year old railway line in Dorset is being "wiped out' without a good bye" a campaigner has said.
Weymouth Harbour's tramway tracks which have been disused since 1999, are being lifted.
Train driver Andy Christie wanted to run a velocipede - a pump bicycle? - a 'pump trolley' along the rails before they were pulled up but said that this event was not supported by Dorset Council. The authority said that organising such an event would take 13 weeks!!! One cannot see why such an event would take more that a few hours to organise !!!
Or maybe take a look at the range of pictures on this website - click here.
Glad you like it. No hurry with these as when you have time. They did a good job getting the canal restored. Roger G - at 08.17 this morning.
You'll be delighted to hear that there are more to follow.
N.B. Rail services withdrawn w.e.f 1st March 1965.
