SCT'61
Trams

GCT 1017 (ex Paisley) was the training car for many years and then the car works shunter. This view was taken by an Head Office clerk who was a keen photographer and gave me a few of his prints as he knew I was interested in the subjects, when I first started work!
In this view inside the car works, is 1017, DS18, FYS323, an Albion Venturer, and several "Cunarder" trams, one "Kilmarnock bogie" car and a Coronation just visible. As the trams were replaced , the Car works undertook repairs to motorbuses and trolleybuses to ensure the workforce were suitably employed.
