Flexity Round-up

Flexity 006 is now back in service again, seen here passing a wind damaged Madame Tussauds on January 31st
The last week has seen a few Flexities appearing back in service that have been absent from the operating fleet for a while. On Friday 25th January, Flexity 002 was noted back in passenger service for the first time since it had returned from Bombardier in Germany on 1st November, it had been confined to driver training duties in the interim. Flexity 006 also returned to the operational fleet last week, having spent five months laid up in Starr Gate depot as the 'spares' tram, being robbed of parts to keep the rest of the fleet operational. 001 was noted out on test during the week, and both this tram and 005 have now returned to use again after a period of absence.
