Looking at the picture and the position of the pair of them. The last thing I would guess at is  the truck rolling back. The debris on the floor seems to indicate either the tram or the truck were moving forward.

The trucks on a bend so 'tail swing' could have clipped the tram, maybe tram driver had the sun in his eyes (the sun shield is down) and braked too late who knows?

It's quite possible both drivers are at fault.

looking at the damage at the front and then running toward to rear I would lay money on the tram driver.

 

And Bubblewrap is right can't be the tram it won't move without a driver.

a4ae4e90adbb9a328784155204d820ca.jpgThese two welded together would make a decent looking tram.

Read a report on it's financial losses..wow!

Is it more expensive than the bus?

Certainly it's here to stay.

Why don't they use trams without tracks or wires that are guided by sensors embedded in the roadway. This has capability or reducing the infrastructure cost by a factor of 25 times and much less disruption.

The trams use batteries for power and are silent running. Where is this being done, you guessed it, China

What a good idea. Let the Council admit their mistake, dig up the roads and start again. Or could they just swap the trams for buses - after all they do run on the same roads most of the time.

a mere dropin the ocean at when put beside HS2 ,millions spent on a white elephant that will disrupt lives and communitys for little or no gain for ordinary folk ,why dont they improve the existing rail infrastructure and make provision for more freight as the HS2 will not be used to carry it ,and then uprate all the local lines to give more capacity for commuters travelling locally between cities,

So that's £48M this year added to the £47 it lost last year and so on. Is the loss calculated before the £4.8M payback or after?  They reckon on paying it all back by 2034, I think they are dreaming and it will finish up with a huge chunk of it being written off - guess who'll pay for that!

Then again I'm quite happy about it....  I live in Derbyshire  ;)
