Croydon Light Rail

This light rail, or tram, system opened in 2000. It has three lines that come together to serve Central Croydon. Much of the lines are on former mainline right of ways. The system connects with many different mainline railway stations as well as the London Underground at Wimbledon.

The cars were built by Bombardier. They run as single car trains. Trains on the Wimbledon-Elmers Lane (Line 1)  line run about every 10~11 minutes Line 2 (Croydon loop - Beckenham Junction) is every 10-11 min and Line 3 (Croydon loop - New Addington) is every 6-7 minutes.
