This week on British Trams Online

This week we bring you a selection of photos from Stagecoach Supertram. Images are from 8th March and show four of the Citylink tram-trains - three of which were in service, one on each of the routes plus one on Driver Training - plus the usual sight of the original Siemens-Duewag trams.

The news at the tail end of this week has been dominated by the return of both the Manx Electric Railway and Crich Tramway Village to action for another year. Despite the weather having other ideas Spring is definitely on the horizon and we are about to enter another season of heritage tram operation across the British Isles! Next Saturday (24th March) will also see the first Enthusiast Day of 2018 at the "Tramway of the Year", the Statfold Barn Railway, which of course includes the chance to enjoy Burton & Ashby 14.

Enjoy the update!

Picture of the Week: Stagecoach Supertram 116 & 120

A different angle of Stagecoach Supertram is seen in this view as 116 - complete with Doncaster Sheffield Airport advert - heads off to Middlewood along Church Street. The Cathedral stop is seen in the background where 120 is waiting at the platform. This stunning image was captured on 10th November 2017.
