What’s New on British Trams Online? 26th June 2021

This week it is into the recent archives again with Nottingham Express Transit the latest location:

Gallery 949: Picture in Time Special – Nottingham Express Transit June 2007

There are updates to the Blackpool Tramway (photo links), Crich Tramway Village (photo links and last operating dates), Great Orme Tramway (last operating dates), Manchester Metrolink (tram delivered and photo links), Stagecoach Supertram (photo links) and West Midlands Metro (tram delivered and photo links) Fleet Lists and the Stagecoach Supertram Advert List (photo links).

As you may have noticed earlier this week when our latest edition of “Still Standing” was published that series has now come to an end (hopefully only temporary!) and we will take advantage of that to change things up a bit and revert to having the photo series only running on selected days of the week. From Monday 28th June the pattern will be: Monday – “Whatever Happened To?”, Friday – “Picture in Time”, Saturday – “Around the World in Trams”, Sunday – “Stop by Stop”. If the amount of news reduces again in the future we will look at resuming more photo series during the middle part of the week.

With news now reaching us that a more normal timetable will resume on Manchester Metrolink from 5th July this week’s “Picture of the Week” takes a look at the Eccles line with a view on Eccles New Road. The Eccles line (on the section between Broadway and Eccles) will be one of those which actually gets a slightly worse peak time timetable as it reverts to every 12 minutes (instead of the current every 10 minutes) although the section between MediaCityUK and Etihad Campus will have trams every 6 minutes with the return of the intermediate services on many routes.
