The first phase of the tram train trial will start in 2010 and it will take two years to test the technical and operational feasibility of tram train and gather the necessary data to understand the costs and benefits. Subject to successful completion of the first phase there is an option for a second phase to use the Sheffield Supertram network to see what additional benefits the vehicles can deliver when extended onto city centre tram lines.
