Red Oktober

For the past few years I've seen photographs appear online after the annual Red Oktober event at Crich Tramway Village in Derbyshire and I always promise myself that I'll make it the following year. This year I finally managed it.

The event is a meeting of Eastern Bloc vehicles built before the fall of the Berlin Wall in a picturesque vintage British setting amongst cobbled streets and beautiful old Trams. Many of the participants dress in period-correct military clothing to go with their vehicles which made for some interesting sights appearing out of the early morning fog!

The full set of photos is here, and there are some highlights below.
