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 Some cars have been withdrawn in the last few years but a few of those still remain stored on property.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).

“Atlas Editions” Tram Models (and Others)

last update of this article: 2 Isle of Man modells added (2017-01-29) – previous updates: Blackpool Balloon tram and Budapest trolleybus added

For some time now Atlas Editions from Switerland (owned by an Italian company) is offering – by subscription only (!) – H0 tram models from around the world. The models are fairly well done (but various errors have been found by experts!) and the models are for display only – i.e. they do not have working bogies/wheels. They offer the tram collection in various European countries. Originally only models of existing trams were produced (looks like they measured the originals, often in museums) but the more recent models of Dijon, Liege and Paris (L type only) seem not to have survived into preservation. In the UK Atlas is offering only OO gauge UK models that have been produced under license from the existing Corgi range (including buses and some trolleybus) but not quite to the same quality as the original Corgi models. Only two of these have been shipped with the German subscriptions. Atlas is also offering a bus collection (I will try to obtain a few of the trolleybuses in this series for my collection only).

Some special Swiss models are still available from Edition LAN AG (they now also sell the other standard models). They usually offer one model of each type that is identical with the 3 Swiss models available to Atlas subscribers but also offer 1 or 2 different versions of them with different fleet numbers and/or different livery.

Strangely, two totally non-authentic models have been produced by Atlas for the French market: the Munich tram in green livery for the interurban “Montmorency – Enghien – Saint-Gratien” and the tiny Halle tram was produced in white livery as “Tramways de Cambrai”: http://forum.e-train.fr/trains/download/file.php?id=259949

Here is my collection:

A few years earlier another “subscription only” company offered HO tram models: Del Prado. The series was unfortunately cancelled after 6 trams due to “lack of interest”:
