This week on British Trams Online

As promised in the last set of notes this week our main feature is from the Isle of Man with photos and an article now added. These cover the Manx Heritage Transport Festival and the preceeding Isle of Man 50 Group private hires and we are grateful to David Mee for providing both to us. This year the the main theme was a celebration of the 60th anniversary of the nationalisation of the Manx Electric Railway and to commemorate the occasion a number of trams enjoyed a repaint including some into the plain green livery - all of these feature in the gallery alongside other sights of the island's three tramways during a two weeks period in July.

And if that isn't enough for you we also have a further gallery with photos coming from the Seaton Tramway.

Enjoy the update - more for you next week!

Picture of the Week: Manx Electric Railway 32+51+van 16

Green has been the colour of choice for the Manx Electric Railway in 2017 with a number of trams repainted in the nationalised livery to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the nationalisation of the line. One of the motors to receive a repaint has been 32 which is seen here on 23rd July during a private hire for the Isle of Man 50 Group when it was a late replacement for fellow green 21. The tour formation is concluded by trailer 51 and van 16.
