In Pictures: Supertram 123 unveiled in new livery

On Sunday 25th October Stagecoach Supertram held an Open Day at the Nunnery Square Depot with over 1800 visitors taking the opportunity to see behind the scenes. Included on the day was a behind the scenes tour (allowing visitors to see the accident damaged 118 and 120), cake, historic displays and the unveiling of 123 in a new livery with artwork by local artist Pete McKee.

The livery on 123 is described as a 21st anniversary celebration livery but in reality is just the standard Stagecoach Supertram livery with a few vinyls added to the windows depicting passengers travelling on board. It is not known how long the tram will retain these vinyls.

A view of the cake, quite why someone decided to start cutting it in the middle is anyones guess!

    “It is not known how long the tram (123) will retain these vinyls,” you muse.

    Not for long can be our only hope.

    A wasted opportunity here to celebrate 21 years,a repaint into original livery would have been nice,or even the publicity artwork brought to life with each of the three cars of one tram carrying one of the three liveries carried by supertram.

    Whilst I agree with the livery comment, it seems very difficult to get vehicles into historic cirporate schemes. 120 and the Metro car being old Corporation liveries is a different thing altogether.
