Took advantage of a rare sunny day to have a look at progress on the West Midlands Metro extension training and testing. I had thought the plan was to extend the service trams from Grand Central to the new terminus without carrying passengers but it proved not to be the case. Instead Tram 18 was the only visitor to the new line although trialling of battery power was in evidence as will be seen in the video. Nonetheless it was good to see movement at last!
