What's New on British Trams Online?

Photos this week come from Sheffield as we again feature the Stagecoach Supertram system. These photos were taken back on 10th September - when it was a lot warmer than it is now! - and show the trams at various locations on the network with the Siemens-Duewag and Citylink trams both featured.

* All new photo collections added to the site in 2021 can be found on the Photo Gallery Index.

Fleet Lists
This week updates have been made to the Blackpool Tramway (photo links), Edinburgh Trams (new advert and photo links), Manchester Metrolink (tram into service), Nottingham Express Transit (new advert), Stagecoach Supertram (photo links) and West Midlands Metro (photo links). We also have an update to the Edinburgh Trams (new advert and photo links) and Nottingham Express Transit (new advert) Advert Lists.

* All our Fleet Lists can be found through the Fleet Lists Index.

In the News
Over the past seven days we have seen new adverts applied in Edinburgh (not much of a surprise there!) and Nottingham (much more of a surprise there!) whilst on the West Midlands Metro with passenger services still not running we have at least seen some trams on test - both the original Urbos3s as well as the newer additions which have yet to enter service. There are also revised services on the way for Stagecoach Supertram and the Blackpool Tramway and staying in Blackpool there has been work on the extension along Talbot Road over the past week. And in Manchestr 3133 has rapidly entered service following its delivery.
