"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

Kharkiv Works Cars

Kharkiv 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). Read More

Kiev Works Cars

Modernised Konstal 105Na trams at Tramwaje Śląskie

Working on the photos I took during a recent visit to Katowice (and much of the rest of the network) I noticed that it is difficult to find a list of all the modernised cars currently operating there.

Sofia Trams

For many years the trams running in Sofia were built by “Tramvaen zavod” (after 2002 called “Tramkar”).

Lodz – Brus museum depot

At the end of April 2013 the tram club KMST (Klub Miłośników Starych Tramwajów) moved the historic cars from the closed ex MKT depot at Helenowek to the ex TP depot at Brus. Brus is now owned by the city of Lodz and there are hopes to re-open Brus as a proper transport museum in Read More

This original posting from 2012 has been updated with a current fleet list (June 2014) only: (Photo: Pawel Kazmierczak) Much has happened in Lodz in 2012.
