I took my son and some of his friends for one of the free rides. The driver was a lady with brilliant blonde hair, red lipstick and nailvarnish. Not at all like the tram drivers of my youth in Sutton Coldfield. All the boys waved and stared at her. We got off at each station and on to the next tram, soending a few hours in all.
It was only a few weeks later I think that there was the first accident involving a tram and a motorist who had driven somewhere he shouldn't have.
