In the UK there are 5 systems - Manchester, Blackpool, Sheffield, Nottingham and Croydon. The government has pulled plans for several more towns but there are plans for a couple in London. Manchester arguably needs a proper subway system but by Uk standards it's a miracle that it got the trams at all.
Sorry I don't have any pics!
Edinburgh and Dublin are building Tram Systems, parts of London are also to get trams. Also many cities such as Newcastle (Tyne and Wear Metro) and Birmingham Metro have good light rail systems.

So that's the new line, Fabb. I rode it several times during my Paris trip a couple of weeks ago - and it seemed to be well used by commuters.
It runs in a nice part of Paris by the way - an area I've never set foot in before my latest visit. The "China Town" (should we say Vietnamese Town? Seemed like that!) at the eastern end of the tram line is pretty nice too - way more authentic than London's tacky tourist trap.

Many cities including Leeds in England are looking at modern trolleybuses and tram-trains
as an alternative to having to dig up roads and have rail tracks running through cities.

Tram-Train plans for UK Cities -

Glasgow is looking to extend it's underground network, whilst most UK cities
have good light and regional rail systems. The Tyne and Wear Metro has just
been extended to Sunderland and the Dockland Light Railway is also being
extended.

City of Zagreb just signed a contract for another SEVENTY (70) of the domestically-built "CroTram"...its worth about ~150 million euros, or two+ million euros per tram.

So within two years, Croatia's capital will have a fleet of 140 modern, low-floor trams with a possiblity for yet another batch of 70 trams for a total of 210 trams.

Meanwhile, Serbia's capital Belgrade can only afford to modernize 60 of its Czech-made KT4YU trams. A very amateurish contest was recently held to determine the look of the future trams...this is what won:

It sure does has a district called Belgrade , a tram is impossible in Namur due to the very difficult and very steep landscape that surrounds it.

The new trams for BLT & BVB in Basel (CH):

That bridge reminds me Nový most in Bratislava, and also the whole city reminds me my city. The historical buildings, churches, towers and also the high-rises. Nice city.

Since the 10 last years, every city in France and probably elsewhere, want to have a tram.
Very big urban development and infrastructure construction is made to get it or get it back after having removed it for a long period due to the increase of automobile traffic like Marseille, Rennes, Bordeaux...

In St Etienne, France, our tram line has been running without interruption since the begining in 1881, it's the France oldest line

I remember the old tram which operated untill 1991, it looked like that:
(Photos from : http://leportailferroviaire.free.fr/urbain/stevie.htm)





here is since 1991:
