    ^ Fantastic pictures, although the tram looks hideous. Shouldn’t they be concentrating on rolling out the new final livery instead of adding even more colours and styles to the current network?

    The only blue tram cost £20.000 to change its outside appearance, the inside was still the same has before.
    Since its unveiling back in july there has been much speculation by all has to why there has not been another blue tram, has blue is to be the new corporate livery, perhaps the second new tram may hold the answer, all trace of pink has gone, and it looks different! and it does have blue along the top and on the front.
    Tram 31 was pulled of service. thursday, 08.02.19 10.20 am.
    Cold rainy day windows full of condensation
    No passinger heating has cold inside has out and two faulty doors to boot.
    The conductor had had enough and wanted and asked for it to be taken off. It duly was.
