Plenty of seats inside - February 2009

143's new lower deck seats have now been trimmed in an approximation of the brown tan leather some early Standard cars had when new in 1924 - before red moquette became the norm on the lower deck. The seat backs & cushions were test fitted on 6th Feb and really begin to complete the internal appearance of the tram.

Meanwhile, all 550v DC traction cable lengths are now in place and the No.1 end controller is fully wired up.
