UK’s first tram train unveiled in Sheffield

Passengers in South Yorkshire will become the first to benefit from the UK’s first ever tram train. The vehicles from this government-funded project are designed to run on both the city’s tramlines and the rail network between Sheffield and Rotherham. This will allow passengers to make single journey between tram stops and conventional rail stations from early 2017, once the works are complete. See the news story:
