What’s New on British Trams Online? 17th April 2021

There is another double helping of photos added to the site this week – coming from Sintra and Crich.

Gallery 934: Crich Tramway Village Shunt – April 2021

We have also updated the Crich Tramway Village, Edinburgh Trams (photo links), Seaton Tramway, Stagecoach Supertram (photo links) and West Midlands Metro (photo links) fleet lists.

On 3rd April 2021 a major shunt of trams at the Crich Tramway Village took place both in preparation of the new season as well as thinking ahead to the arrival of Blackpool 298 and return to service of several other trams. One of the trams which was repositioned was the “tram that started it all”, Southampton 45. Being moved from the depots to the Great Exhibition Hall to allow it to be better viewed by visitors the tram was moved up the depot fan during its shunt to help loose its brakes. That is when we see the tram. It last ran in 2015 and is now one of many trams waiting for its chance to be overhauled. (Photograph by Peter Whiteley)
