Recently we popped by to visit Anglesey's very own car museum, after a break of a few years. Since our last visit a second building has been added, and there are quite a few more military vehicles on display than before. It's well worth a look in if you're in or around Newborough, especially if saloons rather than expensive exotics are of interest.

Hi Rick
Very nice, I do like it when museums do those location scenes to set off the vehicles.

The photos of that Albion coach would go down a storm on the bus site.

Does anyone know the bodybuilder of the Albion coach? Is this a Duple "Aero?".
It has been very nicely restored.

Interestingly, it's granddad's (taid) museum and granny's (nain) cafe. I don't know the meaning of Tacla if it is Welsh.

The Albion gun tractor brings back memories. When I was an apprentice we recondition them and the mechanics would run the engine for a couple of minutes before break time and three of them would sit on the exhaust manifold toasting their bums on it.

"Tacla" is a colloquial word largely confined to use only in Anglesey. It can mean several things depending on the circumstances of it's use. In this context "Tacla Taid" means "Granddad's collection" ,"Granddad's things" or "Granddad's curiosities" or even "Granddad's tackle"
"Tacla" can also mean "rabble".
It is one of these words not normally used in polite conversation and has a hint of vulgarity about it.
The museum has an impressive collection of exhibits but I wish they had called it something else rather more appropriate.

There you go then, I do come from a nice family. Cool

I should point out to the non-Celts that taid is pronounced TIDE and nain is NINE.

Its certainly used outside anglesey.

'Tacla' is slang for the proper word taclau, and really a phonetic spelling of how it is said rather than a vulgar term.

Essentially the translation you give is correct. Grandads Things or Tackle would be how I would describe it.

If I were being vulgar it might also be a way of describing his gentlemans meat and vegetables.
