On Saturday, (31st May) the long wait for the Edinburgh trams to start public operation ends. It’s been a 10 year wait for this, as the contract was first awarded in May 2004.
Another far more important project started in 2004; Fergus took steps to start his own business. This year sees the company celebrate it’s 10th anniversary. You can read here the achievements and changes of Macdonald Sporrans over the same time frame as the building of the trams. I like to think we’ve been quite productive over the last 10 years.
Back in March this year, I took a sneak peak on the trams and was one of the lucky few who got to ride them ahead of the launch as part of Exercise Salvador. I’ve posted a few pictures below for you to enjoy.
