The MOTAT Society recently had the privilege of joining with the Tramways Social Club for their Annual BBQ which included a visit to the Dockline Tram shed, where we were treated to a fantastic barbecue and tram rides around the Wynyard Quarter. We would like to thank Jodie and Alan for their hard work in organising this event and ensuring that everything ran smoothly. We would also like to express our appreciation to the tram crew, consisting of James, Andrew, and Josh, for taking care of us and sharing their knowledge and expertise about the trams in the collection. We were delighted to explore the impressive collection of trams and learn more about Auckland's public transport system's history. Our visit was a tremendous success, and we are grateful to everyone who made it possible.
