    Poetry on/in the Tram

    Dear teachers

    I am drafting a tag line for a project to paint the text of poetry on tramcars, and I am thinking about "Poetry on the Tram" or "Poetry in the Tram". Please advise which one is correct?


    Regards

    . If you are going to paint the poetry on the outside of trams, you are going to paint the poetry on the tram, not in it.

    How about "Lines on Lines".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
