Edinburgh's new tram is now in service and people love it.
Folk around Scotland never mind Edinburgh are flocking
to ride in it.
I'm sure the novelty shall soon wear off.
But the journey to the airport and back was packed
a New Zealand woman was thoroughly enjoying herself.
Ron you two would get on; I wont say a word to Barbara.

Lovely Photo. Claire you can drive to the Park & Ride, one stop
from the Airport and get a day ticket to Edinburgh which
you can use on the buses all day and take the tram back.

Thank you, Ian.

Marvellous, in'it - 50 years ago cities were scrambling to get rid of their trams. Now, they can't get them back again quick enough.

Even cities which never had them are running them - witness Surfers' Paradise in Australia.
