Trams are cool.

And good for the environment.

The future is trams.

A tram going through a level crossing. Don't give up at the apparent break in the middle, take in the whole 56 seconds.

DLR was lovely last time I went on it, like a big rollercoaster but not as scary. I used to go to an exhibition at Excel and the DLR section was the best bit - and interesting to see the contrast of the relatively small blocks of flats and some small houses on the left, and all the massive glass and steel bank buildings on the right. "Five minutes and you're almost there" indeed.

Have seen some excellent light railway and tram infrastructure over the last few days.

London is missing out big time and on many fronts.

What implications are there to barriers / support posts at level crossings, given the current steel crisis ?
