The 9 travelled between Aucheshuggle and Dalmuir

Here's another 29 Destination hard to make out but it appears to be going via The Normal School

The destination on the board is Broomhouse. It was handy if you wanted to visit Glasgow/Calderpark Zoo.

The previous model trams were much more exiting since they had an open platform for boarding. They had a much more boxy shape and when in motion made alot of noise .Also the frame seemed to bend and flex? Some folk called them "shuglly". You can still ride the trams in Melbourne.

My dad used to work at Cowlairs but he got the sack in 1956 after a night shift argument with the foreman. I was about 3. Instead of coming home to Keppochill road where we lived he went down to the tram depot and got a job as a conductor. My mother said he just arrived home at 5:00 in the evening with a tram uniform on like nothing had happened. He was a conductor and then a driver for many years. I remember the last tram running around the whole city and everyone putting pennies on the rails so the tram would bend them and keeping them as a memento

I don't remember the trams in Glasgow, but my dad always use to say that they should never have got rid of them he just loved them.

We do still have trams in Melbourne and they are a great way to get around, but our roads are quite wide and can cope with cars, buses and trams.

I don't think Glasgows roads would be able to cope with trams, buses and cars from what I can remember the road are quite narrow.

Here is a link to my adopted town website where there is a fine picture of probably the oldest tram seen on these boards. I hope you tram-lovers enjoy it.

My dad drove the last tram from Barrhead to Newlands depot.
Also was in the cavalcade of trams that went through Glasgow.
