"Helmuts" in Lodz (Update 2019)

Lodz is one of my favorite travel destination these days. The “Helmut” cars (this is the local nickname for all ex West German cars that went to Poland) are of special interest to me. Unfortunately, the wounding-down of the Lodz interurban tram companies MKT and TP in 2012 resulted in the scrapping of a number of these Read More

Travels 2017 – Part XII (VDVA Helsinki)
