Birmingham city centre skyline
Looking north-west, and up to the roof tops from Centenary Way. On the right is part of the Birmingham Art Gallery and Museum. The tower block is 103 Colmore Row, the tallest offce building in the city, completed in 2021. It is a commercial block of 26 floors, 108 metres in height. It is on the site of the former Natwest Tower, itself only dating from 1975. Things aren't "built to last" any more, or so it seems.

Original Birmingham tram track
Trams returned to Birmingham in 1999, and work has just completed a further extension into Broad Street, however, this little bit of tram track on Chamberlain Square is all that is left from the original tram track. The original trams were withdrawn from service in the early 1950s.

Edmund Street with old tram track, Birmingham
A short length of history is preserved in this stretch of track from Birmingham's first generation tramway. The last three routes closed on the 4th July 1953. The block paving is modern. The system used the narrow gauge of 3 ft 6 inches (1067 mm). This was quite common in the past for Midlands systems, and for many small systems elsewhere. The Birmingham system was the most extensive narrow gauge system in the UK. At its maximum extent its route length was just over 80 miles (129 km approx.) The second generation tramway opened in 1999 using the national standard railway gauge and recently extended further into the city centre. Ambitious further extensions are due to open over the next few years.
