Last week’s Picture of the Week showed Glasgow Corporation Tramway’s 543 horse-drawn tram moving position in the Museum of Transport to make space for the manoeuvre of the Caley 123 locomotive.
So, just how do we go about moving such a large object? The slideshow below illustrates the steps we took.
The picture above shows the Glasgow Corporation Tramways’ 543 horse-drawn tram inching its way through the Museum of Transport’s main hall. Decant technicians and our contractors used specialist rails to move the 19th-century tram out of its location.
It is useful when photographing large objects, such as this tram, to include people in the image to provide a sense of scale. The converging verticals in the roof beams and the paved floor have also added perspective to the photograph.
