In Pictures: Livery changes in Edinburgh

Usually when we report on mass livery changes in Edinburgh it’s a result of new advertising contracts but this time there are four further trams which have recently lost their ads in favour of standard fleet livery. 251 (American Express), 261 (Standard Life), 263 (American Express) and 270 (American Express) are all now back in the standard white, madder, black and grey livery following the expiry of their advertising contracts. With the Coronavirus hitting the country it could be that it be a while before we see any new adverts applied.

251 has lost its American Express adverts and is seen here in plain livery again in North Saint Andrew Street rising up the incline to St Andrew Square tramstop. Multrees Walk shopping precinct on the right and pedestrian entrance to Edinburgh Bus Station seen between front of tram and Louis Vuitton - note vertical bus station lettering.

261 joins Princes Street from South Saint Andrew Street with a service to the Airport on 6th February.

Another tram previously with American Express adverts was 263. This is the now plain liveried tram at St Andrew Square for York Place on 13th March.

270 at Ingliston Park and Ride on 16th March with a citybound service. This tram previously advertised American Express. (All Photographs by Roy Calderwood)
