Scheveningen Den Haag Netherlands 11th September 1982

Scheveningen Den Haag Netherlands 11th September 1982
Yellow-liveried standard gauge HTM 1100, a 600v DC American PCC tram built under licence in Belgium, is on a number 9 service heading for Vrederust from the Kurhaus in Scheveningen and has just crossed Koninginnegracht. This is the stop for Madurodam which is on the left.

We lived in the apartment block behind on Nieuwe Parklaan at the time & I used to catch this tram to the office in the Babylon Centre. I didn't need an alarm clock because the squealing of the wheels of the first tram of the day as it negotiated the bends across the canal immediately woke me up!

HFF and have a great weekend.

A super shot. The lovely bright colours are eye-catching. The sound of the tram must have been a nice wake to wake up - better than the crowing of a cockerel anyday!!
HFF and have a good weekend

Gotcha'.. L.G.... squealing on corners - but interestingly on the straights it is said that the flange on the wheels plays no part in keeping a train on the track due to self centering of the wheels.. anyway enough of this trivia'... have a good 'HFF' and keep well - from Dj.

It looks like the same model of tram that I used between The Hague and Scheveningen, 50 years ago! Belated HFF, Loose Grip!
