Sheffield tram-train arrives

399201 at Nunnery Depot, Sheffield. MIKE HADDON.

The UK’s tram-train trial project moved a step forward on December 1, with the unloading of the first of seven Vossloh Class 399 vehicles at Stagecoach Supertram’s Nunnery Depot in Sheffield.

Numbered 399201, the Vossloh-built train is slowly manoeuvred within the depot confines by out of sight Tram 105.

    The classification is 399201-399207 and will be using the heavy rail to Rotherham and to use the current tram tracks as it heads to Sheffield.
