User / northernblue109 / Aberdeen Corporation Tramways: English Electric 'Balloon' Tram (fiction)

This has been a much requested livery and I am very happy with the result, with the exception of the rather poor representation of a bow collector (which I hope to improve in due course). Aberdeen did indeed acquire a batch of 20 streamlined centre-entrance, double-deck trams, but not to this body style. It claimed at the time that 'the new vehicles are the last word in trams .. they are the best yet made, ahead of Glasgow's Coronation trams'. They were later acknowledged to have a limited route availability and high power consumption, but lasted until the system closed in 1958 (08-Dec-12).
