Off my trolley – Toronto 1995

As I carry on digitizing my slides and old family photographs, I continue to come across pictures I never knew I’d taken.  Not least these two very smart Toronto PCC cars, taken on a 1995 visit to Maxine’s family.  I’d forgotten I’d seen these fine looking trolleys, but there again I hadn’t caught the traction bug back then – I was soon to join ESNG (not quite in existence then) and start modelling in N gauge.

And a double-stack container train.  We had a long wait at the level crossing….


Of poor quality, but with lots of interesting stock and details, are these two pictures of Norwich Thorpe shed and station around 1965.  It’s notable just how busy the station is, and there are plenty of new diesels and DMUs on display.
