There are only a few of these new trams (3 I believe, and 1 is always sitting in the garage), and they were deployed as test vehicles. Due to lacklustre public interest in these new designs, the plan to replace the entire fleet with these models has been scrapped.

Sorry if I didn't make the question clear. I actually wanted to know why they kept the exterior of the new trams bare, instead of covering them with advertisments as they do with the older trams.

I think the fact that they're test trams makes them different and hence not subject to the typical advertising agreements.

As I remember, the new trams are fleet number 169, 170 and 171. They are prototype tram as hk said. The plan tried to convert the fleet into a/c vehicles. But the a/c requires a lot of power and overload the electric system, so the plan didn't go.

I think the reason they aren't "dressed" with ads is becuase these new trams bodies aren't the same as rest of the fleet. The ads aren't painted on the vehicle body but self-adhesive posters that sticks on the vehicle bodies. The posters are tailor-made to fit the windows and doors of the regular vehicles which do not fit well with the prototype trams. Probably not worthy to tailor-made another cutting dimension for just three trams, and decided to just leave them blank.

I see 169 and 170 out regularly but I believe 171 has always sat in the depot and never used for passenger service.

Tram driver suspended over fatality
3 December 2007
South China Morning Post

Police are investigating the death of a 56-year-old man who was knocked down by a tram in Western District yesterday.

Ho Tze-yin, was crossing the road at the junction of Des Voeux Road West and Centre Street at about 12.30pm when he was hit by the tram, which was heading to Kennedy Town.

The tram driver braked but was unable to stop in enough time and ran over the man, trapping him underneath.

Firefighters freed him but he was taken to Queen Mary Hospital in critical condition with head injuries and declared dead at about 3pm.

An initial investigation found Ho had ignored the traffic lights when he started to cross the road.

Police said that although the tram driver, 27, passed a breathalyser test with a low reading, he had consumed alcohol before the accident.

"A verbal warning was given to the driver," a police spokesman said.

The driver, who has been in the job for a year, was immediately suspended.

Traffic in the area and tram services were halted for about one hour while rescuers were removing the man from under the tram.

Ho was a retired civil servant, who had spent decades working as an engineer with the Housing Department. He was divorced and lived in Western District.

The Special Investigation Team of Traffic, Hong Kong Island, is investigating the case.

Officers urged anyone who witnessed the accident to come forward and contact the police on 31068838 or 31068800.
