I presume you mean electricity supply, I understand tram 118 was stopped at Hillsborough (baths) on way to Malin Bridge as the Road was flooded it then proceeded to Middlewood after points had been cleared at Hillsborough Corner. Holme Lane qwas still flooded at this stage, 118 was then stopped on Middlewood Road by police s the road was blocked by a car stuck in flood water.

No one as mentioned supply problems

Remember that the tram would have been to stannington if it had not been for the NIMBY brigade !
