We now have Edinburgh Trams and on day 2 they were certainly busy… a lot of joy riders today I think 😉

The trams go round corners too as we enter St. Andrews Square…

P.S. We have a Third Forth Crossing being built also… to be ready at the end of 2016… called the “Queensferry Crossing“… a three tower cable stayed bridge. The three towers are now being constructed… images taken on 31st May 2014, followed by artist’s impression of completed 21st Century bridge alongside the 20th Century Suspension Road Bridge, and 19th Century Steel Girder Rail Bridge…
