Birmingham Trams

The 'chara' is heading out of Birmingham - more likely on an express service to Cheltenham, Bristol and/or the south west.
Did not recognise use the direction, it was a tongue in cheek comment mainly because to see them in street scenes is unusual, I remember them as the bus my grandmother loved when she took me on one of her regular summer outings and the two places I mentioned were her favourites, I had not seen them used on Express routes, because living in Erdington I was used to the red roofed GHAs on the X99 etc. Thanks for clarifying matters.

By 'Express' I meant long distance, like London, Manchester etc, as well as coastal destinations in the summer.
