First ever: bridge tram
For the first time, on 14 July there was a bridge tournament in a moving tram: at the Museumtramlijn. The moving location was in between two static locations at both ends of the line. In the tram, there were two tables that allowed bidding and playing in the same comfortable way as anywhere else. Eventually, the winners of the Consolation Prize went home with another free tram ride of their choice. (15-07-2019)
401 outside again
Our 401 has been inside for a long time. It needed a lot of work: new bearings, new wheelbands, and more. But now the body is on the truck again, and the truck sits on the wheels. Today it rolled outside for the first time and it could enjoy the sunshine. Now we must do all the other jobs and then it can go into service again. (24-06-2019)
It happens more often, but we don′t always have a chance to take a photo. However, these special passengers really wanted to have their picture taken. They came all the way from the USA for a bi-annual conference and chose us to arrive in style. It was a pleasure to make that happen. (08-06-2019)
GVB 1 ″Utrechtenaar″
Time permitting, work is being carried out on GVB 1 (originally from Utrecht, hence the nickname). In the course of years, the balcony screens have severely corroded at the bottom, neccesitating repairs. The first screen has been replaced on April 13th. Safety glass will be placed at a later stage.
