It's been a long, unhappy saga for the people of Edinburgh. But hopefully the trams will come to be appreciated. This 'tourist' just loved to see them!
The trams have a great bell, if they need to attract attention!
Looking east on Princes Street, with the Scott Monument in the background. Have things changed in Edinburgh in the past hundred years or so?
Recently a friend gave me this old postcard, from the early twentieth century. Right in the middle of the shot is an open top tramcar. "What goes around, comes around."
The new tram service is set to start running for real by May, if not sooner. The specific launch date has yet to be confirmed, according to the official website here.
