It takes about a month to learn, he said. ''There's a big emphasis on safety.'' He stands on a double saloon tram built in 1925 in Wellington. Watch your head: Barry Cody, from Kapiti Pakeke Lions, shows off his gumboot throwing technique. All aboard: Left, Phinehas Todd and brother Tobias take a ride on the tram. Sleeping beauty: An old tram rests inside. Display: Nita Port, from Kapiti Coast Museum. Young explorer: Hope Willis, 2, explores an old display tram in the museum. Young and old enjoyed tram rides, gumboot throwing and model railways over a three-day tramway weekend gala at Queen Elizabeth Park. Barrie Marsh, who travels down from Whanganui once a month to drive the trams and look after the shop at Kapiti Coast Electric Tram- way, said Saturday went brilliantly . About 1500 people visited and $2400 was raised for the trams. On Sunday a few hardy souls came out in the rain, he said. When Kapiti Observer dropped by on Monday morning, a steady stream of visitors, including some who had made the trip up from Wellington, were enjoying the sunshine. There was a bouncy castle, sausage sizzle, Kapiti Museum exhibit, raffle wheel, and vintage cars and machin- ery on display.
