On the hunt for a pushchair that:
Is less than 55cm wide unfolded (won't fit on a tram otherwise)
Will fold one handed (or very easily)
Is suitable for a newborn and a toddler
Has some sort of buggy board/variant to help with 2

Closest I can find is mountain jogger swift but at 58cm it won't go on a tram rendering it useless. Any suggestions welcome!

Can you not fold it before you get on the tram? I used a Baby Jogger City Mini with a Phil'n'Ted's Cocoon (soft carry cot, it fitted perfectly). I lifted it out with baby DD in when I saw my bus coming, folded the pushchair (easiest fold ever!) and just carried them both on, with 3 yo ds. The Cocoon is a bit like a sports bag! Dead easy to carry round with baby in, always loads on eBay.

Maclaren techno xlr, 53cm, can be used from birth to 15kg. I picked it for tram doors too.

Ooh armadillo flip might work, thankyou.

Mountain buggy nano looks to be wider than that unfortunately.

May have to get something and fold before tram but will probably go for baby in sling for early days and sthing mclarenesque if that proves to be only option.

Yeah the buggy has a newborn headhugger. I did feel the baby was a bit low/exposed so used the carrycot attachment for around 3 months. I have the pre-2012 version which has adaptors for a recaro car seat to make it a sort of travel system but I don't think the current model offers that.

Graco Evo Mini is under 50cm, can be collapsed and picked up one handed and is suitable from birth. Googling seems to think that you can put a buggy board on but will leave you to look that up if you think its a contender. We have one for 11 month DS and I love it.

And on a recent long day out I put baby in sling and 18kg 3 year old back in the buggy and it was fine. Only downside I would say is, it's pretty bulky and long folded. Doesn't fit in smaller car boots.

The baby jogger vue might fit the bill - if you look at the best buggy review they said you can leave the front facing harness set up for the toddler and the rear facing harness set up for the newborn. Would take a buggy board but that would need to be removed for folding.

If you don't need the buggy board then I love my baby jogger zip.

I don't think graco evo mini is under 50cm. I seem to remember the online info being incorrect when I bought mine (no longer have it)

What about the Yoyo Zen? Pricey though. A Maclaren XLR or Quest fits the bill and a Mamas & Papas Armadillo.

The Easywalker Mosey is suitable from birth and has a width of 54cm according to Best Buggy. It claims to have an easy one handed fold but I can't seem to get the knack of it and it takes me a few steps, but is fairly easy. It is probably more expensive than the Yoyo though!
