This week on British Trams Online!

We may be winding down for Christmas but still the news keeps on coming! Probably the most exciting piece of news this week is the submisison of the official plans for the expansion of the East Anglia Transport Museum. With a new piece of land having been acquired by the museum from a neighbouring farm they have plans to extend the tramway, trolleybus route and railway as well as providing new exhibition space. The plans are ambitious and if approved will surely help to cement the museum's place in the local tourism market. All the latest news from across the British Isles can be found, as always, on our News & Features page.

And don't forget that voting for the 2017 Tram of the Year contest remains open! You can find out full details of the nominees and can submit your vote on the Tram of the Year page.

Also we have our two Advent Calendars now available. As always we have two different sets of photos available in the run up to Christmas: Traditional Trams and Modern Trams. We aim to add each new image the night before you get to open so it is ready for you first thing in the morning.

Picture of the Week: Burton & Ashby 14

Another of the nominees for the Tram (Traditional) of the Year is Burton & Ashby 14, seen here at the Statfold Barn Railway in June. This tram returned to service in the UK for the first time in 90 years following its return from Detroit and full restoration - and it certainly makes a fine sight on its own dedicated tramway!
