Thomas, Trams and Trolleybuses

Well firstly to confirm that I claim the latest positive dialogue with our  – lets bloody hope -soon to be leader – Thomas Sandgaard. He is a definitely a communicator this boy, we exchanged short messages last night and ended with this message from him – ‘We’ll get it done !!! ‘‘ If success is measured by fan engagement, Thomas is already home and hosed.

Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have an owner who was engaged and actually cared. It might even be a novelty to have an owner who wasn’t scared to come and watch matches with us. Thomas come on mate, make us all happy, get it done and soon !!

Anyway, just because all us Charlton supporters are renowned for our closet interest in trains and such like, I thought I’d take a minute to big up my brother’s latest book – ‘Wires Above South East London’‘ ( catchy title eh ?). My brother, Rob, in addition to being a lifelong fan of Charlton is the UK’s leading expert on Trams and has witten more than 50 books, many of them featuring all our old stomping grounds in South East London. Its an ideal gift for a Dad or Grandad or anyone in the family who likes South East London history and transport. He writes the books as a passion rather than for financial reward but at £25, it makes a nice birthday or Xmas present. Available from Amazon and all good book stores !!!  Its fifty quid for Millwall fans.

One thought on “Thomas, Trams and Trolleybuses

  1. Way back then I lived in Sidcup. I’ve been on many an RTL No 21 bus. Went to school on the old STLs No 229 service; travelling occasionally on a tunnel bus. When I started following the Addicks
    66 years’ ago I regularly caught one of the queued-up match buses on Chislehurst Common. I also possess a collection of model trams together with the Book of Glasgow trams which is full of pics and records of all trams built. In Glasgow I travelled on the yellow 24 tram to go to school.
