Since late last year I’ve been a member of the Ballarat Tramway Museum. I became involved for several reasons primarily because I love trams and trains obviously, and that for the first time in my working life I had an oversupply of time and an under supply of work.
This weekend I completed and passed my initial Conductor training at the museum. Right now that means I am an assistant Conductor. I still have a couple of steps including a medical to pass before becoming a fully fledged ‘Conny’. And then hopefully I’ll be up for a slot in the driver training program starting later in 2016. I just wanted to say a big thanks go out to my Conductor trainer and the museum drivers and all the volunteers who started and have kept the museum going since the 1970s.
I’m looking forward to helping out for many years to come.
