On 27th Apr 2021 3:04pm, Old Lincolnian said: I heard the policewoman on her radio saying "We've got yet another one been hit". The person wasn't seriously hurt but it took a while for people to get used to them.
I was going to ask about the accident rate when the trams were in operation. Wasn't sure if there was a record kept or not at the time. Imagine them today ?

Dreamtime, hello, Hope you’re keeping well, through that hot weather and now the lockdown. To answer your question, I would think small in number, you could hear them from a long way off, and you could feel the underfoot vibrations close up, but I loved them because they offered more open air spaces than the buses that became smoke laden travel.

Kaga, my aunt who lived on Stoney Stanton Road opposite the Swanswell in the 1930's had a Jack Russell that used to board the tram by himself and stay on to Bell Green terminus and return, getting off at the Swanswell again. That was your tram riding era, so you may have met him. Edited by member, 29th Apr 2021 10:12 am

Helen, anyone who tried to steal that dog would regret it. It bit my uncle in a very painful place, and I don't mean at home. That may be why no one tried to discourage it from travelling on the tram.
