As part of the restrictions imposed in the UK as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic you can go out for a solitary walk each day and whilst for many of us that doesn’t take us near any trams for a lucky few they do still see trams and in this new pictorial series (which will hopefully be a short-lived one!) we take a look at some of the trams they have come across during their Lockdown Walk. We start off in Edinburgh.
As with all UK tramways, Edinburgh Trams introduced a revised and reduced timetable with fewer passengers being carried. Trams were running every 15 minutes throughout the day until Sunday 12th April when a further reduction was introduced in the evening with service frequency down to every 30 minutes.
Please note we are not suggesting anyone should go out to take photos of trams during these restrictions. All images featuring in this series will have been taken as people go out for a walk as part of the permitted daily exercise. Please do not make unnecessary journeys just to have a photography session.
