New Addington - Wednesday 10th May 2000

The official launch took place at New Addington terminus, many local dignitaries were present and the white ribbon was cut by The Mayor of Croydon and a retired London Transport tram driver from the 1950's, then for the rest of the day the Tramlink service was free for everyone to try. Relive this historic moment here on my web pages.
