Historic trams crossing the city

This week, the association for arts & culture, history & architecture Ons Amsterdam organises a couple of promptly booked rides through Amsterdam with our museum trams. Of course the participants are extra lucky with the beautiful summer weather. And we have the opportunity to explain what we′re doing, talk about our collection and the tramway network. On top of that, all kinds of particulars are given about the streets, buildings and surroundings that the trams pass by. (18-04-2018)

Existence of museumtramway under threat

On March 15, the Amsterdam city council approved altered plans for the area where our museum has its depot and sheds. The new plan aims to clear the area to make room for new housing. The plans do not include our buildings and tramline. At the end of this year, when all legal procedures have passed, the area is open for clearing. We will report later when news becomes available about our future. (16-03-2018)

Season start 2018 not delayed

The 2018 season starts as usual, on the first Sunday of April, so this year on April 1st (no April-fools joke!). Due to unexpected delays on planned work at the municipal infrastructure next to our tramline, we can only use part of our tramline at this time. (16-03-2018)

Progress on NBM 55

The picture shows the state of restoration on October 21st, when the seating was temporarily installed. A lot of time had been spent on creating and placing the floor strips, followed by the seats. These in particular were time consuming, given the amount of layers of varnish that was required to make the seats shine as they do. The recreation of a Nederlandse Buurtspoorweg Maatschappij trailer car will enter service in 2018. (21-10-2017)
