THIS WEEK the EdinburghSketcher spots a tram in Edinburgh...

The trams have arrived in Edinburgh city centre and look great, here is my misty day sketch from last week on Princes Street.

Although they have brought a lot of disruption and expense to the city over the past few years, as well as making some fairly treacherous cycle hazards in the form of those rails, as soon as I saw them I loved them.

Almost ready for passengers, they are currently being tested along their route and are due to be available for people to ride on in early May.

It was great to see them trundling up and down Princes Street the other day, their electric whirr and lovely ‘clang clang’ bell will soon become part of the Edinburgh experience and I for one am pleased to see them.
