What's New on British Trams Online?

Photos this week come from the Isle of Man. Taken in July 2022 these mainly feature the Manx Electric Railway just before the Manx Summer Transport Festival - there will be another set soon looking at the events during the Festival.

* All new photo collections added to the site in 2022 can be found on the Photo Gallery Index.

In the News
As its been a long-break since these notes were last updated there's been a fair bit which has happened - a lot of which we have probably already forgotten! This has included Blackpool 290's move to the East Anglia Transport Museum, more new adverts in Edinburgh and Manchester, the return of the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway, delivery of new trams on in Manchester and Birmingham, the entry into service of another tram in Manchester, progress on construction works in Edinburgh and Birmingham, track replacement works on the Eccles line, the return to service of Blackpool Flexity2 004 and much more! All of which you can find on the News & Features page.

* To see all the latest news and our regular photo series visit the regularly updated News & Features page.

Apologies for the longer than expected break in main site updates. We do have lots of photos to come over the coming weeks and months and hopefully within the next few weeks I may actually have some spare time in which to do something with them all! If you've sent an email and think I've forgotten about it (to be honest I may well have done!) recently please let me know! Enjoy this week's update - more soon!

23rd July 2022 and two Tunnel Cars are seen coupled together at Laxey. Its not a special enthusiasts event but rather 6 being towed back to depot by 9 after failing up the line.
