Notes:
All trams are now fitted with electronic destination blinds on ends and sides. A number of vehicles now feature revised destination displays with a smaller final destination at the top with stops it goes via scrolling underneath.
The entire fleet - in the following order 115, 119, 104, 101, 107, 105, 121, 122, 120, 114, 110, 125, 118, 103, 117, 108, 106, 123, 113, 102, 109, 124, 112, 111 and 116 - have undergone their mid-life refreshes which as well as internal changes has seen the application of a new fleet livery.
Following an accident involving a Mainline bus on 26th May 1995 the current formation of 102 is actually partly formed with part of 111: 102-1-original centre-111-1. It returned to service in this form on 14th July 1995 and remains like this to do this day.
106 was at one stage stripped for spares and rebuilt.
111 split a switch in the Depot and damaged an articulation unit in July 1995 which led to the formation change as mentioned above for 102. As a result 111 is now formed as 111-2-original centre-102-2. 111 also split the switch at Alsing Road on 23rd November 1996.
118 has now returned to service following a collision with 120 at Shalesmoor on 22nd October 2015. It is made up of two sections of 118 and one of 120.
120's livery is a commemoration of 50 years since the closure of the original tramway in Sheffield. The tram returned to service in December 2015 following repairs after a collision in October 2015. The no. 2 end of this tram is now formed of one of the end section's of 118.
The 21st anniversary livery carried by 123 is the standard fleet livery with vinyls added to the windows depicting passengers as drawn by local artist Peter McKee.

Notes:
Seven Tram Trains are on order - four are required for the UK's first tram train route to Rotherham Parkgate due to start operation at some point in 2017 with the remaining three due to enhance capacity on the existing Supertram network. Due to wheel profiles the four vehicles used for the service to Rotherham will only be able to operate between Cathedral and Rotherham with the other three unable to run to Rotherham. A spare set of tram-train bogies will be kept in reserve and can be swapped with the normal Supertram bogies if necessary.
399 201 became the first Tram Train to be delivered at 2140 on Monday 30th November 2015, being unloaded the following morning.
