Trams. Don’t you love ’em? After Sheffield, Leeds, Edinburgh, Liverpool and, er, Croydon, Nottingham has become the latest UK city to embrace the clean, reliable transport form – adding a touch of European je ne sais quoi into the mix.
Let’s hope it’s a southbound trend: London would benefit most from digging up its tram lines – introduced in 1901 and phased out by the end of the 1940s in favour the Tube and car and bus pollution. Until then, Londoners will have to hop on a train north – or, probably faster, a budget flight to Europe – to appreciate the beauty of the tram.
