As far as I'm aware, no PCCs have run in Switzerland; but a former Brussels car is currently masquerading as a Zurich tram on the San Francisco Muni, such is the esteem in which the premier Swiss system is held. This fictional image is to a different design, being based on the less-angular style supplied to Den Haag in the Netherlands (22-Feb-15).

Whilst I have the Stagecoach paints out, here is a Manchester Metrolink M5000 tram in the Supertram livery used on the Stagecoach-operated tram system in Sheffield. It's a pity about the high level doors, which effectively limits this type of tram to Manchester and, possibly, to a future extension of the Tyne & Wear Metro system. Thanks to Howard Piltz.for the use of his base image (13-Jun-15).

The West Yorkshire PTE has long harboured ambitions of returning electric traction to the streets of Leeds, albeit in the form of trolleybuses rather than trams. This fictional image considers the scenario: what if Leeds had not abandoned its tram system in 1959? Perhaps it would have modernised it along continental lines, using standard units such as this Dutch-built Beijnes double-articulated unit. The attractive two-tone green livery is as used on motor buses in the 1960s with the final Leeds City Transport fleet name (23-Nov-12).

In the 50th year since the closure of Glasgow's extensive tramway system, this former Blackpool tram is presented in Glasgow livery. Like Blackpool and Liverpool, Glasgow was one the few transport undertakings to invest in modern double-deck bogie trams - each to their own distinctive designs. Blackpool choose this elegent streamlined design by the English Electric Company, whilst Glasgow built the more angular 'Cunarder' in its own workshops

Glasgow Corporation Tramways was one of the largest urban tramway systems in Europe, with over 1,000 trams and more than 100 route miles by 1922. The system closed in 1962 and was the last 'traditional' city tramway in Great Britain (19-Sep-12).

This is one of a series of images that were commissioned prior to the controversial and much publicised sale of Blackpool open-top 'Boat' tram 622 to San Francisco. My undertaking at the time was not to publish copies until they had fulfilled their commercial objective (whatever that may have been). In the absence of any update, I have concluded that this time has now passed. The structural modifications and livery are both as specified by my customer (13-Nov-13).
