Along at the Ferrymead Tram Barn a team is busy sprucing up a fleet of heritage trams in preparation for the opening of the city tramway, presently scheduled for October. No.11, the cute box car has been repainted following extensive wood repairs.  Nearby, its powered bogie truck is being rebuilt.  The Brill, No.178, is getting s lot of TLC with a clear lacquer covering existing pain work.  The Boon, No.152 is set for a spruce up and the newly-restored Birney, No. 15 is awaiting sign writing.  The former Invercargill No.15 will be a spanking new addition to the city tramcar fleet.
