It's nice to see that smaller cities are proposing tram systems.
Preston in Lancashire is promoting a four route scheme which seems to have across the board support from councillors and the public.
The trams will be powered by renewables and the most interesting fact is that each tram, which will carry up to 200 people, will use LESS energy than ONE family car! Anyone who doubts that this sort of transport - modern, sleek, fast, clean and energy efficient - will not replace cars and lorries - old fashioned, clunky, slow, dirty and energy wasteful - is living in cloud cuckoo land.
(Pic is Preston in Melbourne - but this is close to what is proposed in our very own Preston!)
