Istanbul impressions

A short trip to Istanbul allowed me to ride all of the lines (tram, metro, tünel, metrobüs, ferries, Marmaray etc.). Photography is difficult as it is not allowed in the stations and there is a lot of security. I had no problems away from the stops but some of the lines offer very few photo opportunities as there is a lot of reserved track (heavily fenced in). Changing from line to another at the main interchanges is often arduous (long to very long walks, many steps or escalators and nearly always one has to pay another fare – there is no day ticket but the electronic Istanbul card offers a huge discount on single fares and is available on all services).

Here are some links to maps (past and present):

Istanbul Ulasim tram T4 (really a light rail line but it does run on the street a lot between high fences) – service is operated mainly by the new 300 class Rotem cars plus ex Cologne B type Stadtbahn cars (also seen were two trains made-up of the original T1/M1 high floor cars built by ABB; one of them included a prototype Turkish car no.RTE2000; the other prototype no.RTE2009 was absent)

TCDD Haydarapasa station (on the Asian side) – when the Marmaray lines are finished (at the moment only a short stretch in the middle including the new tunnel is in operation) this station is also to close. The last image shows two TCDD railway ferries (Demiryolu III and I) moored there.

Bielefeld M8C cars in Lodz

MPK Lodz has now started to use the recently purchased Stadtbahn cars from Bielefeld (Germany) in force. They currently run only on lines Z1 and Z2 from Chocianowice depot. Line Z2 also sees (as a rush hour supplement) use of some of the ex Bochum-Gelsenkirchen M6C cars out of Telefoniczna depot.

Here we see the cars at or near the shared northern terminus on Kilińskiego:

All was still well with the only surviving original GT6 Bielefeld car 1042 (ex 4042) on December 14 when I managed to catch it on line 43 at the outer interurban Lutomiersk terminus. Unfortunately, it caught fire during next week (see this link).

Another Bielefeld connection here: 1038 seen at Polnocna loop. This car started its life as Bielefeld 205 (later to be converted to GT8 in 1966 and renumbered 805 two years later) in 1963, then it went to Innsbruck in 1983 and became a GT6 again numbered 38. MKT Lodz purchased the car in 2009 and ran it still using the same number. When MKT was wound down MPK purchased the car last year and renumbered it to 1038.

No Bielefeld connection here: 1077 ex TP Lodz ex Grudziadz ex Würzburg ex Hagen in new livery passing through Konstantynow:

Lodz (115 years of public transport) – part 1

On December 15th MPK Lodz and the tram club KMST celebrated the 115th birthday of public transport with a parade of trams.

Bildschirmfoto 2013-12-18 um 21.00.55

9 trams representing the varied fleet of historic vehicles that MPK, KMST and also privat individual Tomasz Adamkiewicz own ran from Polnocna loop to KINO CHARLIE in Piotrkowska street. Various photo stops on the way and a huge crowd made this a memorable event. Your webmaster specially wanted to ride the two Lilpop cars that MPK owns. These both do not have a track brake and thus no passengers are allowed to ride them anymore (well, I managed to get myself invited onto one of them…). KMST owned 803N tram TP no.2 made its first public run that day. In the afternoon Sanok no. 17 and 803N no.2 took many people from Piotrowska to the new Brus museum (ex TP depot). This museum is still not officially open and there are big plans to convert it into a modern transport museum (with mainly airplanes and trams). Grilled sausages were served and a bonfire kept the public warm. KMST plans to make the 803N tram available for charters and your webmaster will probably take up the offer later in 2014.

Here are some views taken during the event:

We start with PÓŁNOCNA loop, the old interurban terminal just north of downtown (these days it is only used when there is track work going on somewhere and trams need another terminal – the building is a listed monument but is not at all restored). Regular trams used the terminus on this day as well because Telefoniczna depot was not accessible for a few hours due to the reconstruction of a road bridge near the depot.
