very nice!

I note by way of twist that Metrolink have (i) appointed Stagecoach as preferred bidder for the new (3rd) franchise and (ii) have ordered 8 new trams by way of token relief from the ridiculous overcrowding. Bombardier FLEXITY Swifts like the Croydon ones!

May I ask, are those overhead wire gantries perminent, or are they temporary, as they look too 'heafty', if you see what I mean :wink:

i do not mine if i do that, it just you guys can see then how the route is getting on.
also richards scotts tram will be released soon and i have seen it. its looking great.

Best
Daniel
