The Edinburgh Tram programme is having a few problems as the moment:
enough to make the national news. I'll pass on without comment to one of the few reminders of the once extensive tram network the city once built without much fuss, though admittedly things were a lot easier then. Trams making their stately way up The Mound is something remembered by all Edinburgensians who are old enough. The streetlights here at the Foot of The Mound are former trampoles, still with their finials. Before going up Hanover Street (behind the gallery building) the lines had to swing out to the left and curve round before they had enough radius. The swing is still evident in 'stranded' former kerbstones in the pavement on the corner. November 2010.
