City of Edinburgh Council bosses have revealed that they are to allow various products to be released with the Edinburgh Trams image on as they try to raise extra money during this time of budget constraints. It is not just the trams which be used on products such as mugs and t-shirts but landmarks such as the Scott Monument and Princes Street Gardens will also be used.
A spokeswoman for the Council commented: “We’re currently investigating high-quality merchandising opportunities to help us promote the Capital and its assets. Themes could include trams and cultural attractions, such as key landmarks and monuments like Greyfriars Bobby and the Scott Monument. It’s too early to specify what kind of products we’ll commission but we want to ensure that whatever merchandise we go for is appealing and high quality.”
It has also been suggested that tram models may also be made available.
Although the plans have been met with criticism from the usual quarters we here at British Trams Online are looking forward to seeing just what tram related products may be released!
