Every now and then I have to break off and go upstairs to start uploading the next Japanese clip all from 1960s by HEC Piercey the Merseyside solicitor who travelled very widely in pursuit of transport interests but not as good looking as me, joking aside he was an imposing chap very tall and quite distinctive, his wife bravely followed him on their adventures, ring any bells then. I wonder how she reacted when they arrived in Khartoum he last just 1 shot of a tram before he was dragged away, word is it hasn't improved that much in the intervening years. 2nd film now downloading , you'll see if you look in later that the Youtube channel will be clogging up with Japan. I'll see if I can get the cover for the Liverpool dock truck film done by Monday and get that uploaded. I would have thought that the likes of Flicker would have had more old Japanese tram photos on it but very little and I guess much of what is there is from US service chaps who were into the hobby whereby came most of the oldest post war European tram film via US and Canadian gents.
Not the best day in my life, long story and not for here but the bus hobby is really getting out of hand, perhaps I should just stick to the lorries and be done with it. I can see why so many people who aren't afraid to stand their ground have turned away to things like the canals which are so peaceful or do the steerers getting canal rage at the sight of a camera. Anyway what with the weather forecast and audit another week on at work it all seems to be piling on a bit. I suppose I'll bounce back and the old mojo will catch up sometime. Our agent in Bangladesh assures us that there are now double deckers operating in serveral regional capitals within the country, we still doubt the authenticity and there are no images at all on the net which would I think be newsworthy locally if it were true. Anyway we await finding out at first hand perhaps send him there on the train and tel him we want a photo first! He has been busy collecting bus tickets for friend Martin, joining the new found hobbyists in Sri Lanka. It will have to suffice to have Youtube links this evening as the camera bag is packed for Kent tomorrow morning.
