This week on British Trams Online...

Ummm...not a lot! After adding the photos last week from the end of my Scottish trip and also a few from Crich we are now in a position where this weeks main site update consists of no new photo uploads and just a few updates to the Fleet Lists section. And for once its not because I haven't had the time!

Don't forget we are always on the look for contributions however big or small whether they be of photos or just of information/news to update us on the various goings on around the British Isles. Anyone who contributes to British Trams Online will receive our everlasting gratitude and a year's free subscription to this already free website. It doesn't matter how big or small your contribition is we will always be pleased to hear from you. All contributions in the first instance should be sent to

Now that begging is out the way just what do we have on offer this week? As said before not a great deal but we have taken the opportunity to have a bit of a tidy up of the Isle of Man based fleet lists (thanks to Ken Jones for the information provided). If you ever notice any ommissions or mistakes on any of the Fleet Lists please let us know (oops, there I go again begging for information!)

We have also made a couple of updates to the Diary of Events which has included the addition of Tram and Transport Sunday at the North East Land Sea and Air Museum near Sunderland which had been ommitted initially. This takes place on Sunday 9th August and will give an opportunity for any visitors to take a look around the tram sheds and see recent progress.

Until next time have a good week.

Picture of the Week: Wolverhampton & District 34

Back operating again after more than 18 months out of action is the tramway at the Black Country Living Museum. As before the closure the main service tram is Wolverhampton & District 34 which is seen here running on the temporary shortened line on 25th July as Walsall trolleybus 735 waits patiently to cross the tramway.
