266's advert for CR Smith features a CR Smith van on one of the wheel sections with a Musselburgh Racehorse and Falkirk Kelpie on the other wheel section.  

The advert looks stunning and is very well designed.  

Trams 259 and 266 are the first of 18 trams that will carry CR Smith adverts and it is expected that the 3rd advert liveried tram, which will feature the Orange and White striped lighthouse at Peterhead and Glasgow's Duke of Wellington statue complete with traffic cone and is expected out soon.  

When the 18 trams are complete, there will be 20 trams in advertising livery, with 251 wearing the #tramspotting advert and 261 wearing the Edinburgh Festival advert, although this will probably be changed for another in house advert once the Festival is over at the end of the month.
