Still not got to ride a Baby Grand

No not a piano but a Baby Grand tram as this particular type of tram became known as.

The one I am talking about (former Liverpool Corporation tram 245) was restored to working order at Birkenhead Tramway Museum during 2015 but despite a number of trips over to Birkenhead I have still not been able to ride on it.

I thought last night’s ‘Night at the Tramway Museum’ event was cert’ for a ride as it was definitely running. However, Murphy’s law intervened as it broke down at the Woodside Ferry Terminal end of the line before Jen and I had chance to ride on it. We had to settle for a look around it as a static exhibit. Here are a couple of photos of the beautifully restored (Tram of the year 2015) Liverpool Baby Grand:-
