North Station route testing using two trams

The third day of the North Station daytime tramway testing (and last this week) saw two trams in use along Talbot Road. No testing had taken place on Wednesday due to faulty signalling, similar problems also saw the planned Friday tests cancelled. The trams in use on 30th June were all-over advert Flexity 001 and Flexity 011, which was the first of the new trams to be adorned with an advert back in June 2012, and has been carrying the same Redrow Homes advert for ten years.
