Sounds & Pictures in Time! Glasgow’s last trams

An extra special Christmas treat for you today as we head to Glasgow on 19th November 1962 for the sounds and pictures of Glasgow’s trams. On this date a group of enthusiasts visited Coplawhill Works to assess 1005 for preservation and it was also the time that the last trams were taken into the works for splitting and handing over to the breakers. Six Mark 1 Coronations were on site and before they were condemned once and for all they were permitted to undertake a few final runs. In the below YouTube video Martin Miller has provided the sounds of the day along with some photos of what happened on that special day.
