In Pictures: A windy day in Dudley
It isn’t just operating tramways who have trouble in the wind! On Sunday 22nd October the tram service was suspended at the Black Country Living Museum because of fears that the wind would dewire the tram and cause it to lose braking power. The day had seen the stunning double decker Wolverhampton 49 in service – top deck closed. Eventually the tram was replaced in service by a Wolverhampton trolleybus. These photos from Peter Narramore show the sights from the day.
Wolverhampton 49 waits with one of its last passenger loads of the day. Note the sign of the stairs which tells passengers they can’t go on top.
49 heads off into the sun.
Transportation was provided instead by Wolverhampton trolleybus DUK 833.
A number of items can be found stored around the museum site. This view shows a supply of old traction pole bases.
There are also several sets of wheels. Does anyone know where these came from? (All Photographs by Peter Narramore)
