    Oh yawn, yet another Blackpool biased vote with 2 out of 5 cars – there are too many cars from this system being in Museums now !

      2/5 After the Year Blackpool has has seems perfectly reasonable…

      On balance seems a perfectly reasonable some would say quite safe selection. its the system that survived did what other couldn’t adapted and fought for its existence. Thats why their popularity not likely to weaken. Unlike other systems its not just in a book its their its real and its writing new history month by month.

    • Mike says:

      And two that are Crich residents so equally “biassed” to there…

      It’s just a bit of fun. It’s not as though any tram that doesn’t win will be scrapped or anything, so no need for such comments.

      I say well done to all the nominees. It shows what a good year it has been all round and the diversity of tramways we have to enjoy.
