Ozzy Osbourne Welcomes The Tram With His Name

OD4A9550Ozzy duly arrived today, as promised in my earlier post, at the new Metro tram stop in Corporation Street at 11am and was greeted by a crowd of several hundred and loud cheers.

He is obviously very popular still as a personality. The crowd was so large I could not get a clear view of him unveiling his name plate on the tram.

However I was fortunate to be standing in Fore Street (runs between Corporation Street and Cannon Street) where he alighted from his car and so managed to get a couple of close-up photos.

New Timetable

The new tram service between Bull Street and Stephenson Street (alongside New Street Station’s northern entrances) will commence at 8am next Monday 30 May operating a service every 15 minutes until 11pm. Normal weeks offer trains of frequency between 6 and 15 minutes depending on the time of day. Click here to view the new timetable.
