This week on British Trams Online

Just a small update for you this week with a couple of small Photo Galleries added to the site.

First up we head to Birkenhead where we take a look at a standard operating day on the banks of the Mersey with Birkenhead 20 in service.

Then we are down to Croydon for a small selection of images from a wet day on the London Tramlink system.

On the news front this week it has been dominated by the good news coming from the West Midlands where government approval has been given to extending Midland Metro through Wolverhampton City Centre whilst in Blackpool the Council executive have approved plans for the North Station extension ahead of it going to the full Council and then the Department for Transport.

Enjoy this week's update and we hope to see again next week where we will have more photos for you to enjoy.
