This week on British Trams Online

What's the most frustrating thing about running this website? Is it the arguments amongst enthusiasts about anything and everything? Is it the "bad" news stories as this tram isn't fit for service or there is yet more service disruption somewhere? No! It is technical issues which have precisely nothing to do with trams! And that is what has been happening this week affecting uploads to the website both on the news pages and the general website. Whilst there is a way around this it isn't an ideal solution and may not always work so please bear with us as we get these solved (hopefully!).

Despite thos problems you should hopefully be able to see another couple of Photo Galleries uploaded. We start off at the Seaton Tramway when a four tram service was in operation in mid-September before we take a trip up the country to Nottingham Express Transit including some behind the scenes shots at Wilkinson Street Depot.

The news this week has seen severe flooding in Sheffield affect services beyond Meadowhall South, the Volk's Electric Railway running a three car service for the first time in over 25 years whilst its all about extensions in Edinburgh - construction to start soon - and the West Midlands Metro where testing has continued on the Westside line over the past seven days.

Enjoy this week's update and we should be back very soon with much more from across the British Isles.

Picture of the Week: Nottingham Express Transit 203

Nottingham Express Transit's original Incentro trams are currently undergoing their second refurbishment which not only includes a major mechanical overhaul and interior alterations but also a full relivery into their third different fleet livery. The first to be treated was 203 and we see that tram at Ruddington Lane on 23rd September 2019.
