Last Subway Car Leaves Kelvin Street

leave a comment »

Early this morning, the last of three subway cars left the Museum of Transport on the back of a lorry. Its removal from the re-created subway station in Kelvin Street yesterday was a delicate and tricky manoeuvre, with the low-loader repeatedly moving back and forth to negotiate the museum’s corners and pillars. Clearance at times was down to millimetres.

Last week’s Evening Times article covered the removal of the museum’s other two subway cars. These subway cars, dating from 1896 and 1898, will be the first objects installed at Riverside, where they will help form key displays in the new museum’s re-created streets.
