This week on British Trams Online

It's a tale of two (capital) cities this week as our latest Photo Galleries come from the capitals of England and Scotland.

First up is a collection of photos taken in Edinburgh during September. Images are included in varying weather and show many of the trams before they had received the C R Smith vinyls which are continuing to spread on the trams.

And then its London Tramlink for more photos. This time we concentrate on the Wimbledon branch but also take a look at the eastern branches of the network as well.

Away from these galleries the main news this week concerns the Volks Electric Railway where services have resumed on part of the line as the "Saving Volk's" project starts to come towards a conclusion. It may have been delayed but the operation of services does mean that 2017 won't go down in history as the first year since 1948 that no public operations have taken place.

Enjoy the update and we will have more for you soon.

Picture of the Week: London Tramlink 2537 & 2536

A view from London Tramlink at Reeves Corner as two trams pass on their respective journeys. On the right 2536 is working a line 3 service to New Addington and is about to curve round into Tamworth Street whilst 2537 heads in the opposite direction to Wimbledon.
