Great picture Rab. I was surprised to see that it was a "new" tram. When I travelled from Scotstoun to Partick and right into the Hielen man's umbrella it was always a 'blue" tram which rattled from side to side as we wend along Dumbarton Road. any more photos?

My Mam was a clippy on the caur from singers in Clydebank to Dalmarnock , think it was number 28/29 and I remember getting on the tram at Bridgeton cross and going to the street before Dalmarnock bridge ( where THE BOUNDRY BAR was) and helping my Ma to turn the double seats the oppisite way to go back to Clydebank, I remember my Ma had a uniform with a wee hat (didnea wear trousers in they days, it wis a wee pencil skirt) I used to love sitting in the wee compartment upstairs( you could shut over the door) at Xmas time as I would count all the xmas tree's in people's windows from Dalmarnock to Clydebank Oh Happy Times

It's an old tram which means the clippie (wearin a skirt) had to hing out the upstairs windae tae change the destination sign at the end of the line.
How did they change the signs on the new coronation trams? I cannae remember.

Sorry, don't recognize anyone.

Hi Tramgirl
Is the pic what you mean? These had the destination changed by means of winders inside the cabin. As a "Bankie" I lived almost at Dalmuir West and used to use this and the No29 to get to and from the shows at the Kelvin Hall at Christmas.

OK as you can see it's a model and I need help here. I'm looking for drawings giving details of tenements so I can build a proper street for this to run on.
Regards

OOOPS
I gave the wrong number for the Dalmuir West cars. 9 is OK but the others were 1 (Dont think I ever used that though) and it was 26 NOT 29 for the other route. Up till 1950 you could have got to Clydebank on a single deck No20 Duntocher car. Since I was only 1 year old then I never did ride on them. Oly trip ever on a single decker was on "Wee Baldie" during the rush hour when it was used as an extra to ferry "Broons" workers back into the city.
