What's New on British Trams Online?

Its another look at the modern tram archives this week for our latest set of photos. This time we head back to June 2006 for a selection of images taken on Nottingham Express Transit. With the system just over two years old it consisted of a fleet of 15 Incentro trams and just ran from Station Street up to Hucknall and Phoenix Park - a far cry from the more extensive system we know today.

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

Fleet Lists
Limited updates again in the Fleet Lists with a small updates to the Manchester Metrolink list as 3123 is delivered while we also have photo link updates to the Edinburgh Trams Fleet Lists.

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

In the News
Its been a week dominated by photo updates of the trackworks taking place in Blackpool which has seen no trams running along the entire length of the system. Varied work has taken place including new rails laid, new ballast put down and welding of the track. Trams are due to resume from Harrow Place to Cabin for the next week with more trackwork to come. Also this week has seen the full length Douglas Bay Horse Tramway put into doubt after it was confirmed another vote would be necessary to allow funding for the line from Broadway to Sea Terminal. And with an election taking place to Tynwald this September it may be that the problem is put onto the next administration.

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

As always we hope you continue to keep safe in these uncertain times and please enjoy this week's update! More again soon!

Picture of the Week: Nottingham Express Transit 201

On 7th June 2006 the first of the Bombardier built Incentro trams, 201, is seen approaching the Nottingham Express Transit terminus at Phoenix Park. The tram has come from Station Street and that is where it will return with the destination display having already been changed for that return trip.
