What’s New on British Trams Online? 9th January 2022

We start off 2022 quietly as the photos added this week are those from our two Advent Calendars:

Photos: Advent Calendar – Traditional Trams

Photos: Advent Calendar – Modern Trams

There are also updates to the Beamish (photo links and last operating dates), Blackpool Tramway (photo links and last operating dates), Edinburgh Trams (photo links), Manchester Metrolink (tram into service, new advert and photo links), Nottingham Express Transit (photo links), Stagecoach Supertram (photo links) and West Midlands Metro (tram into service and photo links) Fleet Lists. The Manchester Metrolink Advert list (new advert) is also updated.

With the results for the British Trams Online Tram of the Year 2021 now announced our first “Picture of the Week” for this year features the winner of the “Tram (Modern) of the Year” – Manchester Metrolink 1023. Having been the first modern UK tram to go on display at a museum the tram has enjoyed some TLC as well to make it look its best for the public at the Crewe Heritage Centre leading people to vote for it in the contest. We take you back to 19th July 2013 for this photo as 1023 runs along Lower Mosley Street with a Piccadilly to Eccles service. (Photograph by Gareth Prior)

      No updates since last summer when the Trampower group purchased a building for their new HQ. The last date for work to start on the test track was also last summer but nothing has happened. I’ll let others comment on whether anything ever will…
