Event description

Description

I am pleased to reveal this tour in collaboration with Nottingham Trams Ltd. in aid of NTL's partner charity Forever Stars, with funds also going to the Tramway Museum Society.

The ticket price for the tour is £30. Please arrive at Phoenix Park in time to board the tram promptly at 0910 to allow introductions to take place and our 0925 departure slot to be met.

We look forward to welcoming you on board!


About the charity:-

Forever Stars was set up in January 2014 by Michelle and Richard Daniels, following the stillbirth of their daughter Emily Daniels in December 2013. In May 2014, Forever Stars became a registered charity.

The first aim of Forever Stars was to provide a bereavement suite at the Queen's Medical Centre within the NUH Trust. This facility was developed to help provide parents of stillborn babies and those parents that experience neonatal baby loss with somewhere to come to terms with the loss, and begin preparing for life once they leave the hospital.

The tour:-

The tour will consist of 3 main parts. The first will see us travel on our private tram around much of the system, including all of the NET Phase 2 lines that opened in August 2015. We will also be taking in some track, turnbacks and crossovers that are not normally used by public services. We will then return to Wilkinson Street depot for a full depot tour where we will see tram maintenance and stabling facilities, along with operational areas like the control room. We will then conclude by returning to Phoenix Park where we would expect to conclude by around 1530.
