Visit to Black Country Museum

Called in there on Wednesday for a look round. A few m0re buildings have appeared since my last visit. The tram was running but we walked around the site, didn’t even manage a photo of the tram but I’m sure I’ve plenty from previous visits.

Will upload a few photos in a day or so.

Double-decker gone under low bridge???

Just followed a recovery vehicle moving an open top bus, except it should’ve had a roof on it. The front screen for the top deck was there, but rest of roof was sort of hinged back & overhanging the lower deck. All I have seen on the news so far is of a recent accident in Cradley heath – but no details.

Ah, just found the news article:-
