399 204 arrives in Sheffield

Having waited so long between the first and second tram-trains to arrive in Sheffield the deliveries have now definitely accelerated with 399 204 the latest to arrive following the long journey from Spain. The tram – which is unsurprisingly the fourth of the seven vehicles being constructed by Vossloh primarily for the tram-train pilot to Rotherham Parkgate but also to increase capacity on the existing network – arrived at Nunnery Square in the early hours of Tuesday 19th July. It will now undergo commissioning ahead of a start on testing and driver training and then an eventual entry into service.

    I recently saw reference to accident damage on at least one of the new Trams. Can anyone shed any light or was the poster (on fb) mistaken?

      Apparently 201 and 202 may have been involved in a collision at the depot. Presumably only minor damage but nonetheless not a great start!
