The Tram Story

Once upon a time there was an old tram resting in a field in Mullagh, Co. Cavan in Ireland. It was built in 1902 in Philadelphia, then transported to Lisbon where it spent most of its life, working at the service of the city and its inhabitants. After many years in the bustling capital city of Portugal, the tram got moved to a transport museum in Colwyn Bay in Wales.

A few years later, when the museum was shut down somehow the tram found itself in Cavan.

One day, a man called Dave, while was driving through the Irish countryside, accidentally took the wrong road, ending up right beside that field; As he spotted it he remembered that once, when he was just a kid, he had spent a few nights camping with his friends in a similar tram and since then he had held a place in his heart for them. Suddenly he was struck with an idea:

he envisioned a busy cafe, filled with good food, nostalgic 1920's music, sunshine and laughter.

The Tram Story

Dave was now determinate to find out who owned it, so he headed to the nearest shop, asked some information, without however, any results. Two weeks later he decided to go back to Cavan for a trip and give it another chance. 

 

The Tram was built in 1902 by Brill, Philadelphia. It spent most of its working life in Lisbon, Portugal,

before it got retired in a transport museum in Colwyn Bay in Wales. A few years later, somehow it ended up in field in Mullagh, Co. Cavan in Ireland.

One day(month, year, whether), a man called Dave, who was going back home to Dublin, took the wrong road and he ended up right beside that field. 

When Dave spotted the Tram he remembered that once, when he was just a kid, he had spent few nights camping in an old tram 

He visioned a buzzy, busy cafe, filled with good food, nostalgic 1920's music, sunshine and laughter.
