This week on British Trams Online

Well, we don't actually have main site updates this week although the news page has continued to be updated with all the latest news from across the British Isles. As there is nothing waiting in the wings to be added in the form of photos it seems an opportune moment for the main site updates to take a little bit of an update. Due to holiday and work commitments the next main site update it is not now due until Sunday 9th July. Hopefully by this time we will have a few more Photo Galleries to bring you - if you have any photos you would like to share please send them to the usual email address - and until we are back the News pages will continue to be updated on a regular basis.

Whilst we are on the subject of the News page we have once again had a lot of negative comments left on various news stories - many news stories which you would actually think were positive but apparently not in the minds of some - over the past couple of weeks. We have also been well aware for a while that a number of individuals have several identities when leaving comments. As a result of this, and whilst we review all the options for the comments going forward, you must now register for the blog before leaving a comment. It is disappointing that we have had to take this step - and we know it won't stop the negativity completely - but it has got to the stage that it doesn't matter how good the news is being reported someone will find something negative to mention.

The main site of British Trams Online will return on Sunday 9th July.

Picture of the Week: Blackpool Brush 623

Blackpool Brush 623 has become the latest tram to head home to Blackpool for a loan period of operation leaving the Heaton Park Tramway on 6th June 2017 for a temporary holiday. It is hoped that 623 will be launched into service in July. This view shows the tram on the back of the Scotts low loader as it departs Manchester.
