Just GBP12 000 has been raised from the sale of 13 of the former Midland Metro fleet of AnsaldoBreda T69 trams, which are to go for scrap. The vehicles, mothballed in 2014-15 following their replacement by CAF Urbos 3 vehicles, were sold by auction in February (TAUT 962).

Tram 7 has been acquired by UKTram as a rolling testbed, while 11 (in Birmingham Corporation blue and cream) has been given to Birmingham Museum.
