Tram and chips, twice


SMRS members rarely miss the opportunity to do things in a big way, to 'go large' in the modern idiom. And so a recent trip to the Fylde coast saw a double dose of trams, with Tony running Harry Moore's 'Southport in the day of the tram' at the G-Wizz garden railway exhibition at Lytham, and Jim, Richard and Marilyn joining in with a tram trip to inspect the Blackpool illuminations. This was done in slightly novel fashion, taking one of the new trams southwards from Fleetwood. As well as making car parking easier, this avoided potential traffic problems with the old Blackpool Tramways.


Inbetween another doubling, this time of fish portions at the (alleged) best fish and chips in the north of England, namely Seniors at Thornton Cleveleys. For Tony to have difficulty in clearing his plate is testament to the quantity provided, and the quality did not disappoint either.
