    Default Traffic Day at the Danish Tram Museum

    Here's a little nugget for the tram fans in our midst.

    The Danish Tram Museum at Skjoldenęsholm is considered to be in the top 5 of its kind worldwide. It houses a vast collection of domestic trams from the cities of Copenhagen, Odense and Aarhus and trams from Flensburg, Basel, Oslo and even Melbourne. Also, since many tram companies operated bus lines, there is also a large collection of vintage buses, and quite a few vehicles are in working condition.
    The museum is located next to an abandoned railway line, and the old right-of-way is used for a 1.8 km tram line from the museum into the forest, where a reversing loop runs around a picnic area with a cafe tram.

    On May 25th the museum held a 'Traffic Day' with departures from the museum every 5 minutes and classical cars invited for a meet at the museum.
    It's been a very long time since I have visited the museum, but boy, the members of the Tramway Historical Society are an active and imaginative bunch. I am inclined to agree that they give any other museum a run for the money, but judge for yourself. I for one had a wonderful day out, filming the action.

    (You may want to turn down the speaker volume. Those old two-axled trams are really screaming in the sharp curves ...)

    Thanks, @SteamPower4ever! And it's even a Danish town whose name I can have a reasonably easy chance of pronouncing correctly! Skjoldenęsholm.

    If you ever get to Wisconsin, I think you'd like the East Troy Railroad Museum. I sure did. https://www.easttroyrr.org/

    Thank you for taking the time to film, edit and post your day out. I particularly like the shots of the trams coming through the woods
    Thanks, Tom

    Yes, the forest provided a nice setting. Also the picnic area.
    I'm just amazed at how far the old Melbourne fleet has traveled since the 'great sale'. That's the first time I've seen a W class so far north...

    @mosslake The Melbourne W6 tram is actually a wedding gift from the Victorian Government to H.R.H crown princess Mary and H.R.H crown prince Frederik, the crown princess of course being of Australian birth.
    The tram is placed in custody at the museum, but is still owned by the royal family.
