    nice one always wondered what those few hunks of junk were for!

    the tram was brought over from San Fransisco along with another for testing whether bringing a fleet over was viable to up the capacity for the Manchester Commonwealth Games, gauging wasn't quite right so the rest were left in america one was scrapped here and this one is supposedly a test bed for regenerative braking systems
