What's New on British Trams Online?

Its just one set of photos for you in this update but its a bumper collection of images from Nottingham Express Transit. Featuring 35 of the 37 strong fleet of trams (the two remaining examples were in depot, incluidng 202 which is undergoing refurbishment at the moment) we show the trams in service across the extensive network including the refurbished Incentro trams, 213 in an advert for e-on and the Citadis trams too. All photos were taken during a three day period in September.

* All new photo collections added to the site in 2020 can be found on the Photo Gallery Index.

Fleet Lists
The Nottingham Express Transit Fleet List and Nottingham Express Transit Advert List have both been updated with the addition of that e-on advert as well as photo link updates. Meanwhile, there are also photo link updates to the Blackpool Tramway, East Anglia Transport Museum, Edinburgh Trams, Manchester Metrolink and Stagecoach Supertram Fleet Lists.

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

In the News
Its been around 10 days since our last "main site" update and in that time we have we have seen trams return to action at Summerlee, progress on the demolition of Wilko's in Blackpool, more progress on the Birmingham Westside extension on the West Midlands Metro, confirmation that the new trains on the Tyne and Wear Metro will be going yellow and a new (to us) advert in Nottingham amongst other news stories.

* To see all the latest news and our regular photo series visit the regularly updated News & Features page.

We will be back on target with Sunday updates again soon, with the next scheduled main site update of British Trams Online now due to be on Sunday 4th October. In the meantime don't forget the News & Features page will continue to have daily updates and for those so minded there should be "Live" coverage from Blackpool on Facebook starting on Thursday 24th September and continuing over the weekend as the tramway celebrates 135 years.

Please enjoy this update and we're be back soon with more from the tramways of the British Isles.

Picture of the Week: Nottingham Express Transit 229 & 211

On 20th September with The Forest becoming a very temporary terminus because of a RTC (not involving a tram) on the line ahead) we see two trams passing on the approach to the stop. Recently refurbished Incentro 211 has just departed from the centre platform at The Forest as it returns to Clifton South as Citadis 229 waits to pull forward into the stop where it too will reverse.
