Only a week to go now until our TMS 60 event on the 19th September, which is one of our events taking place this year to mark the 60th anniversary of the Tramway Museum Society.

It has been an early morning start for our Workshop team, who are starting to bring together the final pieces of the puzzle, ready for the big event next Saturday.

Of course that means that tramcars have been on the move today.

No anniversary event would be complete without a guest appearance from the very first tramcar that we acquired, Southampton 45. This very popular tramcar was actually moved into the Workshop last week to start the commissioning process, and has now been joined by the slightly larger open top tramcar Newcastle 102.

Southampton 45 on the depot, as it moved from Road 3, to Road 2 in the Workshop, which allowed Newcastle 102 to also move into the Workshop.

Newcastle 102 will feature along with Southampton 45, and 7 other open top electric tramcars**, as part of a display on the depot during our TMS 60 event.

This display will highlight the diveristy of the open top tramcars that we have here at the Museum, and will be a great opportunity to see them as a group. They are all unique in there own way, and are sure to be a highlight for many visiting during the event.
