12th of May.
If you don't know already, we have a Facebook page, https://facebook.com/Brightontram53society, please visit and say like! A few more details about the fittings. At the H.C.V.S rally last week a gentlemen came up to the stand and said" I have some F class tram bits, would you like them?" After looking like a stunned merecat, El Presidente said yes, big please and took contact details. We all stood there afterwards and wondered that such things could happen.The gent concerned was Brian Johnson and is a long time bus and public transport fan, who is actively involved in Amberley as well as a lot of groups.A pair of Brighton "F" class trams stood at Fittleworth, West Sussex in the early 60s, numbers 63 and 54 and though they couldn't save them , they drew plans and stripped the fittings. Brian has waited almost fifty years, but when he saw we had signed up and were progressing, he felt the time had come to pass these very important fittings on.... thank you from us all Sir.
