Two Bits Of Progress For Sheffield’s Tram-Train

There were two positive articles on the web about Sheffield’s delayed tram-trains.

This article in the Construction Index is entitled Green Light For Sheffield’s Tinsley Chord.

It describes how the papers have been signed and work can start on creating the Tinsley Chord to connect Sheffield’s Supertram to Rotherham. The article says that the track will be ready by the end of 2016.

There is also this article in Railway Gazete International entitled First tram-train heads for Sheffield.

The Class 399 tram-train is expected to arrive in Sheffield at the beginning of December.

So at last something seems to be happening, which in my view is one of the most important rail projects in the country.

Wikipedia has this of places in the UK, who are looking at tram-trains.

Eighteen places are mentioned.
