Brisbane Tramway Museum August 2014

Brisbane Tramway Museum August Event

The picnic at Ferny Grove and the visit to the Brisbane Tramway Museum was well attended and enjoyed by members of the SOCQ and several visitors from the RGCC. The weather was glorious and the company great.

The Maddock family turned up in force with Darcy and Lyn accompanied by Russell and his children. It’s always a delight to compare their Sunbeam Imp Sports.

Neville Kennard, proud owner of his beautiful Rapier, Peter and Jane Prasser in their Sunbeam Fastback and Steven and Linda Graham in their Alpine enjoyed the occasion.

It was good to catch up with Alan Geoghegan who turned up out of the blue. He and Barbara have relocated to Buderim where his Rapier Fastback and Alpine have a new home. His Mark Alpine is having some repairs and will move north soon. Alan and Neil had a great chat.

After lunch we arrived at the Brisbane Tramway Museum where we were greeted by one of the volunteers. We inspected a number of old trams in the sheds and had the pleasure of three different rides on the ‘old girls’.

Claudette just loves old trams and took her daughters on the last ever tram ride in Brisbane in 1968.
