July 2021 Picture of the Month

One of the final images for my new book The Gas Tramcar – an idea ahead of its time – was taken in the last week of June at Cefn Coed Museum near Neath in South Wales. Although the museum is currently closed for essential repairs and maintenance, Neath Port Talbot Council generously permitted me to have access to the site to get the final pictures – a visit which,of course, has been delayed several times over the past fourteen months due to Covid restrictions. Neath Corporation Tramways  No.1 – the last surviving gas tramcar anywhere in the world – was restored in the 1980s after its bodyshell was discovered in a local garden where it had been being used as a garage for the previous sixty years. The book will be published next year under the Pen & Sword Transport imprint. Taken in a very restricted space in the tramshed with my Canon 5D MkIV and a 14mm lens.
