The video on the left showing the band playing the fanfare and a couple of marches on top of the tram was created from work by David Hennessey and Monopodman. You can see their full videos on Youtube by clicking on their names.
The Meresyside Tram Preservation Society have restored tram 245 and to assist in its launch we provided a fanfare as it left the tram shed and then played a selection of marches on top of a tram as it traveled from the shed to Birkenhead's Woodside Ferry. You can see and hear some of it in the video opposite.
It was great fun, the BTPS people made us most welcome, and, for once this year, the sun shone while we played..
