Trams at Christmas
The trip to Lisbon is a far off memory, but I'd though I'd share these. I bemoaned from the start that there wasn't a transport museum. This surprised me as the tram system is so in your face from the moment you arrive. However there was no mention of one in any of the guides (no mention of fingers and woggles please). On a ride out of town I spotted it. Tucked away on the main road west.
Good? Yes. They take you round the site in an inspector's tram and gently show you through five rooms full of trailers and horse trams. Apart from what looked like five women from the local W.I. we were the only visitors. Sad. It's a lovely little museum, cost three quid to get in and is woefully under publicised.
