    Hi Friends.

    First, let me say it was a memory making night. Of the group only four made it, and Harold came with his lady friend Kathy who had her first traction night out :D
    After a good nosh at the Mohawk INN (recomended),we braved the cold wind but the night air was pleasant and we stepped back in time to ride the radials;) .
    The Museum operates only on cotributions from fans and the days ticket sales:) .
    The hard restoration work is all done by skilled volenteers and the eager to help traction nuts, also the operators are volenteers.
    We are very grateful to all and take our hats off to you.
    THANKS:) :) :D :D :D
    We hope you enjoy the photographs and get the urge to go and ride the radials..................:p

    Yep Santa likes Traction toooooooooooo:D

    This is what I came to ride my favourite London&Port Stanley #8
    Droooooool.
    When the motors started to hummm and the wheels gave off that old familier sound AND the motor man tooted the toot.
    OOOOOOOOOOOOO.
    I liked it a lot ;) ;) ;)

    I didn't manage to make contact with you, but I'm there in L&PS 8, just in front of the partition.
    Did you get a ride in the rail grinder,W-30?
