Historic Electric

Recently I've been sent links which may be of interest to the electrically minded of South Shields :
Still from a newly published YouTube video of the Harton system in the late 1980s

..... & on the subject, I notice that the Electric Railway Museum must move (see 9 July) because its site south of Coventry is to be redeveloped
