This week on British Trams Online

You can tell that spring is here this week as tram events and operations are definitely starting to pick-up and British Trams Online is no different with three new Photo Galleries for your entertainment - including the first traditional trams of the year.

First up we head to the Boston Lodge Workshops at Ffestiniog Railway in Wales for a brief update on the restoration of Glasgow 488 - with the lower deck now reaching a conclusion - view the photos here.

Then we move from Wales to Ireland as we feature the Luas system in Dublin for the very first time with a selection of photos taken during March - view the photos here.

And continuing our international theme for this week our final collection of photos features Burton & Ashby 14 which made its first public appearance since returning from the United States at the end of March - you can view those photos here.

We will have more photos for you next week but until then please enjoy the update...

Picture of the Week: Burton & Ashby 14

On Saturday 28th March the Statfold Barn Railway in Staffordshire held their first open day of the year which also provided enthusiasts their first chance to see Burton & Ashby 14 in the UK for 35 years. This view was taken during the Open Day and shows 14 in pride of place on display still with adverts for Detroit applied on the sides. You can view more photos of the tram in Gallery 521.
