75 years of tramcar design

75 years of tramcar evolution separate the 1937 built Brush car and the brand new Bombardier Flexity 2 design

  1. I was there today too. Have you any idea why a mass cycling event that only starts after 6pm would warrant the cancellation of the heritage cars? I think I'm a jinx cos every time I go there never seem to be any running!

  2. No, it's a complete mystery to me as well. The heritage trams run between about 10am and 5pm, so it shouldn't have affected them at all really.
