Tram shelter

This LCC Tramways passenger shelter is believed to have started life in Peckham where it may well have protected passengers waiting for the 201 to New Cross. Later in life it saw service in Redhill as a shelter for Country Area buses.
 
It was rescued from Surrey and dismantled brick by brick for storage in the London Transport Museum Depot before being re-erected in the forecourt next to the Acton Miniature Railway.
 
The Friends are supporting the restoration of the shelter and have already funded the replacement of the wooden-tiled roof.
 
Attention is now moving to the other areas of the structure. Support blocks have been manufactured and will be galvanized as part of a larger order and then fixed. 
 
Later in the restoration, the shelter will be dressed with appropriate signs and posters. Any if anyone have information or photographs to suggest what is appropriate to display, then please let guy.marriott@ltmuseum.co.uk have further details.
