This week on British Trams Online

Just a brief update for you this week as we bring you a small collection of photos from Stagecoach Supertram. Taken on 4th May these photos are from the street section of line between Shalesmoor and Hillsborough and show a number of the original trams in action including all over adverted 111 and Sheffield Corporation liveried 120. Thanks to Ian Buck for these photos.

On the news front this week we have seen Halle 902 go to Blackpool for a storage loan with Blackpool Brush 630 heading back in the opposite direction following the conclusion of its succesful loan period. Meanwhile in Edinburgh there has been yet another C R Smith advert applied to a tram - their 19th advert! We have also had news from Birkenhead, Crich, Midland Metro and Sheffield amongst others. You can read all that on the News Page.

And if you like live updates on Facebook keep an eye out from Saturday evening for another few days of photos.

Enjoy the update, more next week.

Another tram being shunted is featured as this week's Picture in Time with Halle 902 seen on 20th May 2018 being shunted by Blackpool Jubilee 762.
