I well remember the trams when I was a youngster. I used to get the tram from paisley road west into the toon centre and it was always great fun as it shoogled aboot the road and sometimes it shoogled so much you fell aff your seat and landed on the flair. I seem to remember that sometimes the thing on the roof which ran along the electric wires would come of and the driver would come out with a big long pole and get it back on again lol When you reached the terminus the conductor would go up the aisle pushing the seats backwards so that you would be facing the right way again

But when me and my pals were out on our bikes we didnae like the trams because our bike tyres got stuck in the rails and you usually ended up going over the handlebars Ouch!!

If my memory serves me right I think i remember lots of trams on Govan road full of all the shipyard workers going hame from work

This really brings back old memories thumbup.gif

Hi all, i love reading all your posts.
I hope someone on hear can help me?

I was born in 1962. The last Glasgow tram ran in 1962 correct?

Then why do i remember being on a tram with my aunt Jean when i was about 4 in possilpark?
Is my memory playing tricks?

Hi Purplefan,
The old memory must be playing tricks, l think by 1966 all the tram lines were torn up and repaved. Did your Auntie maybe take you to the old Transport Museum, which l think opened up in 1966
Cheers

Hi Purplefan,

Maybe you were on a trolley bus, they were still running then.

I never thought of that. It must have been. But i swore on a stack of Bibles, that it was a tram.
I remember the sticks on top of the bus/tram, perhaps that's why i thought
it was a tram?

Might have been a trolley bus, but it would not have been in Possil, the nearest trolley bus would have been on Garscube Road, If l remember it ran from Queens Cross to Polmadie, or maybe Mt Florida. Could be my memory playing tricks on me too.

Hi Guys
I'm trying to build a OO scale tramway to run this on
[attachment=27501:Model_1282.jpg]
But I need details of tenements to produce a model street. Things like the size of the blocks used to build tenements, window and door sizes, Room sizes.

Can anyone help?

The Bankie

Dear Bankie, I am a builder of scale models, sailing ships and Samurai for the most part. I have seen articles on how to scale ships from photographs. I am sure you could scale tenements from photos of them with buses trams etc. and people beside them. There is an excellent collection of pictures of tenements and Glasgow streetscapes on "Citynoise Govan". Just type it in on your search engine but wait a few mins. before scrolling down as it needs to set up a lot of photos.

Anyone help with these: - when we were kids in Pollock in the early 50's as a treat we used to go on a tram from Barrhead Cross (Toll?) out to 'somewhere way oot in the country'. Could it have been to Carnwadric, perhaps? The main thing I remember it was a really long ride, and part of it was alongside a drystone wall right up to the track and fields that stretched for ever (to wee eyes).

Other thing, I used to go to school in Partick via the wee chuggy ferry at Govan. When did they stop running, and was it 2d each way in those days. wacko.gif

10 minutes of archive footage over several decades. Some of it very poor quality, but at least they saved it. I don't recognise half the places even though the title says this is all Glasgow.

I remember a tram that went to the Art Galleries. I think it was one of the last to go.
