Luckily 276 was the very first tram that I saw that day!  

The livery, the same on both sides of the tram, advertises their Braveheart's revenge show, which opened in June 2018.

Also of note, one of the panels on 257's #jointhepact advert has been changed on either side of the tram to show a person signing their name on a wall full of signatures.

Edinburgh Trams update 4.8.18 https://scottishtrains.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/8/edinburgh-trams-update-4-8-18 254 at Edinburgh Park Central254 at Edinburgh Park Central254 departs Edinburgh Park Central with a York Place - Airport service 4.8.18 I haven't been to Edinburgh to photo the trams for a couple of months, however as there are a further 3 new adverts on the trams since I was last there, I thought I'd better go for a visit!

New adverts

276 has received an advert for the Edinburgh Dungeons.   The advert has a mainly black base and is of the standard all over advert design.   Unfortunately, the tram wasn't out in service today so didn't manage a photograph.  This advert replaced the Royal Highland Show advert previously carried.

264 was the final tram to retain fleet livery and is now the third tram to receive an advert for Parabola, however this one is also advertising the Fringe Society and is due to wear this livery 12 months.

271 has received an advert for Tiso, this has replaced the all over advert for Qatar Airlines that it had carried since January.

During August, the trams are operating through out the night on Saturdays to allow easy travel home from the Festival.  Also the trams are beginning to receive fleet numbers above the cab windscreens

Trams seen in service on 4.8.18:

251, 254, 256, 262, 263, 264, 266, 267, 268, 271, 272, 277

Blackpool Heritage Trams 1.7.18-7.7.18 https://scottishtrains.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/7/blackpool-heritage-trams-1-7-18-7-7-18 147 at North Pier147 at North PierLooking fantastic following it's recent repaint, Standard 147 is seen at North Pier with a heritage service from Pleasure Beach 1.7.18 I was in Blackpool for a week long holiday from 1st - 7th July.   The blue heritage service was in operation for the full week with 2 trams required to work the promenade service from Pleasure Beach to North Pier with 4 journeys per day extended to Cabin.   The tram on Route A did the first 2 journeys to Cabin, while the route B tram did the final 2 journeys.

The weather was absolutely fantastic with blue sky and sunshine meaning that as boat 600 was the only open topped tram available for use during the week, it was used every day with either Standard 147(looking fantastic after it's repaint) or Bolton 66 working the other route.  

Of the other open top trams: Boat 227(602) was still having work done to it's rewire and internal repaint, Boat 230 (604) is awaiting a rewire, Open topped Balloon 706 (Princess Alice) is out of service in need of a new underframe and an overhaul, Birkenhead 20 was still unavailable and Standard 143's overhaul (with open front ends) wont be complete until next year.

Balloon 717 was spotted reversing at Cabin on Thursday evening (5th) following a private hire.  

On Friday (6th), the service was thrown into chaos when Boat 600 dewired at the Pleasure Beach, with the trolley wheel also coming off the pole.  This meant that nothing could run south of Manchester Square for 2 hours while the overhead was repaired.   600's trolley wheel was refitted and the tram returned to service none the worse the wear.

All the flexity trams saw use at some point over the week, however it was good to see both 017 and 018 in service. Both are identical to 001-016 both externally and internally although the fresh paintwork on the new trams makes 001-016 look in need of a repaint, especially on the purple areas which look faded compared to that on 017 and 018.

A full gallery of photos from the week can be found at: http://scottishtrains.zenfolio.com/p548244318

Adverts for Edinburgh Trams 265 and 268 https://scottishtrains.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/6/adverts-for-edinburgh-trams-265-and-268 268 at Ingliston Park and Ride268 at Ingliston Park and RideThe second tram to emerge in an all over advert for the Palabola development but with inverted colours is 268. 268 is seen at Ingliston Park and Ride with an Airport - York Place service 8.6.18 On 4th June, a further 2 Edinburgh trams entered service wearing adverts.

265 has became the 20th tram to carry a CR Smith advert, being the recipient of an identical advert to 256, which received its advert on 21st May.   Both trams advertise CR Smith's door window and conservatory upgrade and repair service. One of the panels has 'FIX' in large red letters with the other section listing the items that they can fix.  The advert appears to be the same on both sides.

268 became the 2nd tram to carry an advert for Parabola, who are developing a new “community and architectural exemplar” at Edinburgh Park. The advert is identical to the advert that 254 received last week except that the colours are inverted with a mainly green base with the text and patches in the pinky colour (they are the opposite way about on 254).

265 and 268 become the 25th and 26th trams to receive adverts, meaning that tram 264 is now the only Edinburgh tram not currently wearing an advert.

Trams seen on 8th June were: 261, 252, 260, 265, 268, 273, 276
