Glaring Error?[edit]

I may have discovered a glaring error in this interesting article, the second line reads:- "It operated a fleet of six narrow gauge tramcars on a single route..." and a line in the 3rd para. of the "Tram Cars" section reads:- "and two were converted to 4 ft 8 1⁄2 in (1,435 mm)...". However, the info box on the right states that:- Infrastructure Gauge 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) Standard gauge.

How can this be? The line was either Standard Gauge or Narrow Gauge, but surely not both!?

Might I suggest that further research is done so as to ascertain the correct size of gauge?

The original tramway was 3 ft 6 inch which is confirmed by the references given. It is also confirmed by a source that relates to the trams sold to Leamington & Warwick in 1905 when the original track was re-laid. (see this). --Simple Bob a.k.a. The Spaminator (Talk) 10:13, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
