3rd December 2010
Well, the snow has kept coming, and last night it froze. Hard. For a week or so we have been mulling over the problem of keeping the tramway clear and a snowplough, tram or otherwise mounted would seem an obvious solution. I have taken the curatorial stance that we don’t mount anything on the trams themselves, but we do have some old Blackpool EE trucks tucked away. The thought is that one of these, with a weight on top and a decent blade, can be pushed by any tram, or the forklift (or even towed on a strop by a road vehicle).
Meanwhile, Darren and Mark have taken the project forward with this temporary contraption, using a maintenance trolley, pack of breeze blocks and some wood! We’ll all be waiting with baited breath to see if it works…!!!
