  6. What many people don't realise is that the signal returns to horizontal within a second of the front of the tram passing it , to a casual observer they think the tram has moved against the signal.

    Supertram future- consultation

    It's probably a good time to look back at the short history of second generation tram and light rail systems that have been built in Britain since the early 1990s. The first to open was Manchester in 1992 then Sheffield in 1994 and thirdly West Midlands Metro in 1999, it was always thought early on that the Sheffield vehicles were by far the better trams of these three systems and this proved to be correct as Manchester had a new fleet of trams by 2009 replacing all the 1992 vehicles and West Midlands Metro had a new fleet in 2013 again replacing the original 1999 trams. Sheffield are still using trams from 1994 by far the oldest trams in use in Britain. All these systems and replacement trams were financed by Government money as was all the rail replacement that's been done in Sheffield over the past few years plus the seven new trams of which three were for the original system. I can't imagine the government not providing funding for new trams having provided large amounts of cash already to keep the system in good order.

    Loxley Valley - air full of smoke

    It was deffinatley the moors fire as it got hazier and a lot smellier as I got nearer to Bakewell , the rain came down and the smell and haze vanished.
  14. Malin Bridge is a very small suburb and the tram stop is in the centre , where on earth do you get the 1 mile figure from maybe you meant 100 yards .
