Santa Tram

Blackpool No 11 and London Transport 1858 ran to Santa's Grotto
Earlier today I took the grandchildren (and a few grown ups too!) to see the Santa Tram at the East Anglian Transport Museum in Carlton Coleville

Two Sunbeam trolleybuses were providing laps of the venue. They were Derby Corporation 224 DRC224 and Belfast Corporation 246 2206OI

We also sampled the short ride on the East Suffolk Light Railway

The two trams that were in use were Blackpool Corporation Marton 'VAMBAC' No 11 and London Transport 1858 which provided the power to get to 'Santa's Grotto' (Hedley Grove)

Great Yarmouth buses were to the fore with Reliance AEX85B sitting alongside Leyland EX6566

Also on display were two former Great Yarmouth buses - 1949 Leyland PD2 EX6566 and Penine bodied AEC Reliance AEX85B. The former displaying the destination 'Magdalen Estate' with route indicator 'A' - so fondly remembered by my wife!

A lovely afternoon was had by all (probably mostly by the grown ups!)
