Tramlink 2548 returns to fleet livery

After approximately six weeks carrying a bright and pink vinyl wrap advert for Magnum
, London Tramlink’s 2548 has returned to fleet livery. The tram was last seen in its advert on Saturday 12th May but by Tuesday 15th May was noted in service in the lime green, blue and white Tramlink livery. Hopefully – from the viewpoint of a photographer anyway! – this will be first of several trams to receive all over adverts in the future on Tramlink as it certainly adds to the colour of the modern tramway systems.

    As I have implied earlier, it is nice to have at least one tram that has a livery that is different from the mainstream livery that is carried by the rest of the fleet. 2548 was a real eye catcher; I have seen it for itself, and witnessed photographers taking pictures of it during my recent visit!
    While I accept that the time is up for 2548 carrying this interesting livery, I hope that Tramlink will apply special liveries for individual trams again in due course. Surely 2535 ‘Stephen Parascandolo’ should be displayed in its original 1998 red and white fleet livery again (if not even better than this)by this July to commemorate the 60th aninversary of the end of London’s first generation trams in 1952! And , of course, as I have mentioned earlier, would the House of Reeves be interested to have an advertised tram to help fund for the restoration of the burnt out Reeves Corner stores……
