Almost five years to the day since we first met at the tram shed to discuss the possibility of doing something with 107, and what a lot has happenned.

Today I managed to get another two ceiling planks screwed down and Jim spent time rubbing down the monitor ribs on C side.  The ceiling is starting to look very nice with the alternate light and dark colours.  We also spent some time sorting out the modified design for the seats, in the light of the recent research trip to Crich and also information from photos of other Milnes cars.

Most of the day was spent talking to the group from Leicester who are just starting to restore Leicester 31 which has been a pig and chicken shed for the last 60 years.  Apparently the pigs lived upstairs.  We had a very good time and exchanged a lot of ideas.  We wish them all the best with their endeavours. their website can be visited at http://www.leicestertrams.org.uk/.
