Excuse my ignorance, but presumably the pod on the roof shows whether it is fitted with batteries or not.Soho Benson Road
Tram 30 with batteries in blue.
Winson Green Outer Circle
Tram 32 without batteries, blue with lime green OLA adverts.
Heading up the steep tram bridge.
Tram 35 heading down the tram bridge.
And then at the tram stop.
Thanks, presumably somewhere along the route (not Somewhere along the Way by Billy Eckstein). it is going to be wireless (overhead) or are the batteries an emergency source of power...enough questions for now.Yes it's those things at the front and back of the trams.
Good point.Do we have any information on how many trams are battery fitted? I am assuming that some trams which are not battery fitted will have to continue to terminate in Stephenson Street for the time being with only some trams able to run to Victoria Square/
I thought that the Blue trams were the ones fitted with batteries but this might not be the case. There are new trams on order but these are additional trams not replacement and will be updated versions of the existing trams.Good point.
I can't imagine that passengers would have to select the correct type of tram if the wanted to travel to Hagley road etc.
If passengers from Wolverhampton (and all stations before Stephenson st) wanted to travel to Hagley road, would they have to swop trams at Stephenson st?
When the line to Hagley road is complete will all existing non-battery driven trams be replaced or converted?
Does anyone know what plans the tram operator has?
