    (My emphasis added).

    It wouldn't be necessary for the ELR section to be wired up. We already have hybrid overhead/battery trams running in Birmingham.

    Similar situation exists at one end of the Hartz in Germany.

    Conclusion: it can be done. We wait to see whether it will.

    Put it another way: Other countries seem to allow common-sense decisions. Here we will have all and sundry debating the rights and wrongs before it goes for an H&S assessment, which will then more than likely kill off the idea as 'not safe or practical' after a 10 year 'consultation period'...

    Now shown as cancelled on ELR website, due to non-availability of 60009.
