West Midlands Metro tram No. 17 (in new livery), Corporation Street, Birmingham
The tram is about to leave Corporation Street and cross New Street on its way to the current terminus at Grand Central (New Street station). It was manufactured in Spain by CAF in 2013 and has now received the predominantly blue livery adopted by West Midlands Metro. This did not involve repainting as instead coloured vinyls are applied. Previously the livery was mainly magenta. The tram has now had powerful batteries installed so it can operate on some of the future extensions which will be built without overhead wires.
