Recently I uploaded a selection of photos to Facebook I took on various charters (as the Americans call those private hires) that I attended or organised (often for a gang of friends from Cincinnati). I know not everybody is on Facebook … so here are the photos. If you want to see more photos from Milano try this Facebook group run by Peter Ehrlich (he organised the early trips and attended many of the ones I ran when I took over from him). My photos were uploaded to his group page. A very small number of the images shown below are also included in our travels reports.

2004 – we used Ventotto 1503
I seem to have used some cheap slide film (unfortunately, there is a yellow tint visible and it was a very cloudy day). We also used “PCC” 5137 but I have not scanned those slides yet.
2005 – we used “replica Edison” 609
2006 – we used workscar 701
2007 – we used Ventotto 1966 (which still had a trolley pole then – but it was firmly tied down)
2007 – we had another charter that year using Vents 1503 and 1730 plus 609 and 701
2008 – we used Ventotto 1723 (I have also included some photos taken on our interurban travels posted to another Facebook group)
2009 – we used Ventotto 1757 – one of the first regular cars that got repainted into the white & yellow livery (I have also included some photos taken on our interurban travels posted to another Facebook group)
2010 – we used Ventotto 1503 plus 609 and 701 plus trolleybus 548 (I have also included some photos taken on our interurban travels posted to another Facebook group)
