Well, here they are ... working.
Apparently that's quite a change - I've heard plenty inside stories from an inside source (no, I'm no telling) about site workers turning up, putting thousands of pounds worth of equipment into their hired transit and driving off to the continent and beyond! I'm sure that's the minority though ;)
I'm fairly sure that we'll appreciate the trams in time. Too much money has been spent for us to stop spending!
I pretty much decided on this shot from a block away - the dust gave a great natural blur, I didn't really do much computery except enhancing the yellow on the truck. All the edge blur is "dead street"
