#Strasbourg – cross border trams

I love the trams in this city, which I’m visiting for work. When I worked in Manchester they were one of the inspirations for our Metrolink – but the Manchester trams are not as stylish, I have to admit. Now they’ve extended one of the five lines across the Rhine into Germany, at Kehl. I remember stories of how you could go by tram from Vienna to Bratislava in the old days; good to see something like that coming back.
