T69 Tram e-Auction

We are delighted to announce an exciting one-time opportunity to own not only a piece of transport history, but also a fleet of 15 type T-69 light rail vehicles.

Originally purchased from Italian manufacturer Ansaldo Trasporti and in operation between 1998-2014, the former standard bearers of the Line One route between Wolverhampton and Birmingham city centres are currently in storage at Long Marston Airfield.

The e-Auction will take place on Monday 29th January 2018 at 10am and will be hosted by BravoSolution.

The trams are currently owned by a subsidiary of The Royal Bank of Scotland plc (RBS). Each sale will be subject to satisfactory completion of any 'know your customer' requirements which RBS may specify. Each winning bidder will be required to enter into a sale agreement in a form specified by RBS (which will be available on the BravoSolution e-Auction platform) and collect the trams from Long Marston Airfield within a specified time after the auction.

To register your interest in this unique opportunity contact Chris Robinson, Metro Procurement Lead Officer, at chris.robinson@wmca.org.uk
