I like the Tram. but think there is more foreground than needed in the fuselage image. Just going back to the tram, with all that dilapidation was there not some interesting colours on show.

I wonder if that was more down to the lighting, it's not been the best up here of late.

I'd be interested, might be a place for a mini meet. Is there coffee?

upping the saturation a little bit usually works for me.

I was aware there used to be an aircraft museum here but thought it had gone long since, overwhelmed by the massive Nissan complex. This has whetted my appetite too - as Barrie says perhaps a mini PUF meet is in order. Even better if there is a coffee shop with bacon butties.
The tram is interesting and the aircraft looks like one of the smaller Boeings - 737 or 727?
David.
