Red Oktober Day

EASTERN Bloc vehicles from around the UK and overseas will descend on Crich Tramway Village for the annual Red Oktober Day.

Trabants, Wartburgs and Tatras will join the 1969 East Berlin tram and the tramcar 180 from Prague.

Prague 180 ‘escaped’ from Czechoslovakia in 1968.

The event is on Sunday, October 23. Anyone with a pre-1990 Eastern Bloc-built vehicle or a uniform from the era who is interested in attending the event can ring 01773 854321 or visit
