You can now register your votes for the British Trams Online Tram of the Year 2020 with the final shortlist now announced in all four categories: Tram (Traditional), Tram (Modern), Tramway and Event of the Year. Some years it is difficult to come up with the shortlists because so much has happened whereas other years it’s a struggle because not much has – and 2020 probably comes into the latter! But despite that we think there is a good varied selection of trams, tramways and events you can vote for.
You can register your votes by visiting the dedicated Tram of the Year page at http://www.britishtramsonline.co.uk/tramofyear.html which also gives full details of why each nominee has made the shortlist (although its probably pretty obvious in most cases!). Please remember its one vote per person and any duplicate votes will be removed before the results are announced. And the most important thing is this is just for fun!
Voting will remain open until 1000 on Saturday 9th January 2021 (the second Saturday in January) with the results announced on the morning of Sunday 10th January 2021.
To the most important thing – the shortlists!
