This week on British Trams Online

We bring you three more Photo Galleries this week. Whereas last week our theme seemed to be traditional trams this week we are very much looking at modern trams...

First up is another collection of photos from Manchester Metrolink with images taken at the start of May. Mainly taken on the Exchange Square to Shaw & Crompton section we also have photos at other locations in and around the city centre.

Then we have some behind the scenes images from Midland Metro with photos taken during a LRTA organised trip at Wednesbury Depot.

Our final offering for this week is from north of the border as we feature Edinburgh Trams. Photos in this collection were taken in mid-May and show some of the CAF built trams in action at various locations on the line.

But its not all about modern trams as we have also added a few more photos to the collection from Crich with another car rally taking place last weekend.

There won't be a main site update of British Trams Online next weekend as instead we will be providing more Live coverage over on Facebook. The coverage will this time be coming from Blackpool with updates provided from mid-morning on Saturday 28th May through until mid-afternoon on Monday 30th May.

And that Gold heritage timetable in Blackpool looks set to be one of the highlights next weekend along with the return of Beside the Seaside at the Crich Tramway Village (28th May to 5th June) whilst down at Seaton there is the chance for a Driver's Eye Experience.

Enjoy this weekend's update and we will return with more updates in June (but don't forget to keep an eye on the News pages throughout the period for all the latest news from across the British Isles).

Picture of the Week: Manchester Metrolink 3035+3058

We're off to Manchester Metrolink for this week's cover photo as we partly feature one of three trams currently carrying all over advertising liveries. This view is taken just outside of Victoria and shows 3035+3058 heading off to East Didsbury. 3058 is carrying an advertising livery for Sainsbury's whilst its leading partner is still in the standard fleet livery.
