Excerpts from this DVD on Youtube.
The London (originally Croydon) Tramlink system was opened in May 2000 after construction between 1996 and 1999. The system is a mixture of former rail alignments, street running in Croydon town centre, and new reserved track routes on the New Addington and Beckenham Junction Lines. The original trams were 24 Bombardier CR4000 built in Austria and numbered 2530-2553 and were delivered in London red & white livery. Following take over by Transport for London in 2008, the system was renamed London Tramlink and as the trams were internally refurbished the livery was changed to the current green, blue & white. In 2012 6 new Stadler Variobahn trams arrived which were built in Switzerland, these are numbered 2554-2559 and are 5 section, 6 axle cars. All are in fleet livery except for 2554 which is an a special Croydon Council livery in recognition of the financial contribution of the council towards the new trams. This DVD was mainly filmed between 2005 and 2013, although there some earlier clips from 2000/1 mainly showing trams in various advertising liveries, otherwise trams are shown in both the red/whte and green/blue/white fleet liveries. The DVD is divided into 4 chapters: Part 1: Wimbledon to Croydon. Part 2: Croydon town centre. Part 3: East Croydon to New Addington. Part 4: Addiscombe to Elmers End and Beckenham Junction. Subtitles, no commentary, enjoy the sights and sounds of the trams of London Tramlink. Wide scree, PAL UK system, total running time 75 minutes.
