Last day of the old year, may I wish you all a great 2011, despite the wobbles in our financial monopoly game! Back from Manchester, nice trams, very smooth ride! Highlight of trip was standing next to a Beyer Garrett loco, same gauge as 53, 3foot 6 inches.Hope to be out at 53 next week.

This is the last blog before Xmas, so season's greetings to you all! We had a good meeting Monday, though the snow stopped some coming in, I trust the quiz was not too hard, I am sure it did test your tram/local knowledge to a high degree.I have just found out that Crich is shut over Xmas, but I will be in Manchester to see other rail features, the Brill quest will have to wait. If you have been following this blog, but haven't committed, join us in 2011, make it a year that you DID something, and didn't just think about it!

Another weekend of activity, Ian has fixed the lights in one cab end,and John Z and Richard G were all doing some paint scraping. El Presidente did a little more painting on the Graz Tram and also sprayed more wood worm treatment on both cab ends after rubbing down the wood, and did some painting in one cab end. Amazing how a little paint can transform the neglect...if you are reading this and haven't joined, or worked on 53, commit now, there are many simple jobs to do.
