EMA in Inventory Intangible Cultural Heritage
Thanks to Wijkraad Zuid-West Amsterdam, EMA has been listed in the Dutch Inventory Intangible Heritage. Knowledge base Inventory Intangible Heritage Netherlands implements the UNESCO convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Netherlands. It promotes and makes available intangible heritage, stimulates and professionalizes the sector, promotes participation and enhances knowledge.

Work continues, despite the Winter. Here we see popular GVB articulated 586, after having had its damaged pantograph replaced in the Havenstraat depot.
The blue-grey three axle car 909 has been in our workshop for some time to repair leaks in the roof. The roof consists of a steel frame, covered by planks and canvas that is sealed with a coating. The coating and canvas have deteriorated over time, so first thing is to remove the coating, which can be seen in the photo. (12-01-2019)
Our volunteers do the work!
Where would we be without our volunteers? If it′s not running the trams, then they′re working on them: maintenance, repairs and restaurations. Or they are active elsewhere in our organisation, because also we have jobs where you don′t get your hands dirty. Big cheers to all our volunteers for all the work they′ve done in 2018! (30-12-2018)

Interested in supporting us? Go to the Dutch donateurs page under ′Over ons′ and hit the e-mail link with a short request, so we can send you all the details in English.
