Charkiv Works Cars

Charkiv is another system with a large number of work (non-passenger) equipment, though much reduced in size compared to just a few years ago. Some of the retired cars remain stored on property. We have tried to list the location where all vehicles are stationed (by personal observation during 2 separate visits to all depots). Here and there some details (incl. vehicle history) remain unknown. Below is a list followed by 2017 photos of the vehicles we were able to photograph. Many of the permanent way vehicles actually belong to the Track Department (GET Service-KP “Gorjelektrotransservis”)” but here we have listed the locations we found the vehicles in (they may well move around). Kominternovskoye (PW) indicates the location of the separate permanent way yard south of the old Kominternovskoye depot (which now just acts as a workshop – the huge complex used to house many more departments of the transport company but much land has been sold and converted to other use).

Kiev Works Cars

(PPW-1)

Like many large tramway systems the Kiev fleet sports a fairly large number of work (non-passenger) equipment. Some cars have been withdrawn in the last few years but a few of those still remain stored on property. We have tried to list the location where all vehicles are stationed (by personal observation during 3 separate visits to all depots). Here and there some details (incl. vehicle history) remain unknown. Below is a list (yes, we discovered the table function of wordpress.org!) followed by 2016/2017 photos of the vehicles we were able to photograph. Some works cars have been repainted just recently for the big tram parade that took place on June 17th 2017 at Kontraktova square on the right bank (a number of them were even transported across the river from the left bank system just for the parade – the track connection was lost overnight in 2004).
