Would've liked to have seen one of the original liveried trams preserved, rather than a silver and pink one, but beggars can't be choosers. I remember there being some rumours of them going to the Isle of Wight to replace the old tube stock there, if one of the tunnels could have been adjusted, but either that fell through or someone was fibbing over on RailUK.

I do really miss the T69 trams though, at least when it comes to comfort, the new ones just feel too plasticky and plain inside, and the seats are pretty awful too.

Tram 26 has been returned from Wolverton Works by road in 2 separate parts, and been repaired after being damaged last year.
