    What happened to tram route numbers?

    Other than services that turn back at Cathedral and Cricket Inn Road now there's no actual part route timetabled services anyway. There's an argument behind both methods with the destinations though - Blue Cathedral or Blue Cricket Inn Road, lets people that don't recognise the destination, know...

    Sheffield - Rotherham Tram Train Service updates

    Supertram will have been briefed on the issue and are just choosing not to release it publicly. If it's done on Stadler's advice it'll be all six 399s temporarily withdrawn, hence no TT. Certainly there was an abundance of them outside Nunnery on Saturday.

    Sheffield/Rotherham Tram-Train update

    Nothing of the sort. It does however come at a very similar time to when one of the units sat down in the city centre yesterday requiring to be towed back to depot...coincidence?

    Sheffield - Rolling Stock Graveyard ?

    Lincoln no longer gets regular Pacers on a daily basis, with most Northern services now being booked 158s (soon 195s).

    Manchester Metrolink tram going via Exchange Square rather than via Shudehill

    The line was never closed. It was a points problem which was restricting services from certain lines from accessing the Shudehill or Exchange Square line.

    ECML Disruption between Leeds and Doncaster (03/08)

    No, it was the NR test train. There's a photo going around on Facebook currently of a bright yellow door tangled in the OLE. Looks as though it opened and caused the damage and was subsequently ripped off the train.

    Flooding Disruption 31 July/1 August

    And what would you do about crews? What about on Monday morning when there's no spare units at Sheffield?

    Sheffield to Gainsborough Central

    These are now just an extension of the hourly service.

    Northern Class 170's

    There looks to be a morning ECS from Holbeck (Leeds) to Hull, 5K40 (http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/Y60687/2019/05/21/advanced) which then looks to form the 0630 Hull to Sheffield - I wouldn't be amazed if this is a 170 or two, and there's some equivalent return paths in an evening.

    Trivia - northern unit liveries

    I'm sure old Northern would probably have beaten it - FNW Barbie, FNW Star, Northern Spirit, ATN, Merseyrail, their livery plus the "prototype" liveries..!

    How Are Double Deck Trams Transported to Crich?

    Yep, on the back of a low loader, still as a double decker. Scotts, who we use for the transport, are very experienced with moving tramcars around, and so try to avoid routes with very low trees and, obviously, low bridges. It's to do with protecting the front and the roofs of the trams with...

    Sheffield/Rotherham Tram-Train update

    It's when the points fail. Nothing more.

    Sheffield/Rotherham Tram-Train update

    Indeed, that of the trailing bogie. Looks to be more than just the tram train profile vehicles affected as all six Citylinks are missing their trailing bogie coverings.
