I am pleased to announce that Mr. Roger French of Bton Buses supports our endeavour, and I hope to submit an article to the staff magazine shortly. Please note that we are going to upgrade to a website, as this blog is getting crowded! Watch the skies for more details, and remember a tram is your best friend, so help restore it........

I was struck by the workman like approach to the tram's construction.it is all to a high standard, but is definitely no frills! Compared to an Edwardian tram that is an easier body to restore, and a comment on the approach to things in 1937.I am still amazed how the steel work has held out, some surface rust, but a little graft will alter that.

We had the first proper meeting of the society last night (23rd of May), and a lot was discussed and agreed upon.I for one, was still basking in the glow of the first work party, what a great bunch of people you are! We will be at the Bton Buses rally on the 13th of June, on Madeira drive, Brighton, so come along and say hello!

The one item that hasn't surfaced is a proper plan of 53, or one of a similar class.I would imagine that the plans got burnt at the depot, but hope still lingers that somewhere someone had the sense to save something. There are places besides Brighton to look, but no luck so far, see what your gran has in the attic!

Not too much to report, suffice to say, two work parties are being organized, and don't forget the 23rd of May for the meeting! A big thank you to Mr. James Type, who has not only paid his sub for the year, but has become the first to donate a sum of money, which puts him on the roll of sponsors, the first of many I hope!
