In Pictures: Driver Training commences in Edinburgh

As reported on British Trams Online in the past few weeks, progress is continuing to be made on constructing the new Edinburgh tramway with further road closures and traffic diversions being introduced to allow the laying of the tracks. One section which has had tracks laid for a while has been that near to Gogar Depot where driver training has also been in evidence recently. As well as driver training being much in evidence a large number of the CAF built trams have now been delivered and if you carry on reading this article you will see photos around the Depot of a tram on test and those trams stored and waiting the chance to carry passengers.

    Nice photographs. Are they models or just a computer generated picture to wet our appetite? I find it hard that so many trams are laying idle with nowere to run.
