Stagecoach Supertram has announced that the entire fleet of Stadler Supertrams being used in Sheffield has been withdrawn.

Stagecoach is unable to run any Tram/Train services until further notice.

This is because the manufacturer, Stadler, has told Stagecoach Supertram that they need to temporarily withdraw the fleet.

A further update will be provided as soon as Stagecoach has been updated by Stadler.

Due to suspension of the tram-train service between the Cathedral and Rotherham-Parkgate, tickets are now being accepted on Northern trains between Rotherham Central / Meadowhall and Sheffield.

Tickets are also being accepted on the following Stagecoach / First bus services: Meadowhall / Rotherham X1, X10, X78 Rotherham Interchange / Parkgate 8, 8a, 9, 22x*, 218, 218a, 221 22a, 22c

  • Big blow for Stadler who are continuously manufacturing new trains and the new trains including the Greater Anglia Class 745 and Class 755 Flirt are having all sorts of problems. Suppose Stadler do know about each problem with new trains once being mass produced.

  • Stadler trams run all over Europe…has any other operator had problems? Must leave Sheffield commuters high and dry. Will be interested in the details.
