Listed are all current workscars, the fleet on show in the new Technical Museum (most cars are on loan from the tram company) and all other preserved cars (including those unrestored ones Read More

Kolkata 1926 – “Spurensuche “

“Spurensuche” is a German word I can not easily translate into English. “Search for traces” comes close but sounds very technical. “Spurensuche” is actually something I intend to do on my next visit to Kolkata – look for traces of the old tramlines (mainly in Howrah). Hopefully I’ll have more time for things like this. Read More

Travels 2011 – Kolkata (Fleet Overview)

This my attempt to compile a fleet list of the CTC. I can not say that I am 100% confident that everything shown here is correct. Various sources (most with little details and many omissions and even more remaining questions) have been used. Also my trip to Kolkata in February 2011 has allowed me to Read More

Łódź Interurban Tramways – Part II (The Fleet)

Part I of our Lodz report dealt with the interurbans. In part II we show you photos of the current fleet (including all of the workscars) as of June 2011. All images were taken in May 2011 (except #72 and #506 which were parked in and impossible to photograph so older images were used) Here Read More

Łódź Interurban Tramways – Part I (The Lines)

Łódź is unique in Poland because it kept most of its interurban tramways. Only two lines were closed in the 1990s (route 44 to Aleksandrow and route 42 to Rzgow). See the 1998 map for details (this was published in the 2001 publication: Lodzka podmiejska komunikacja tramwajowa 1901-2001): click to enlarge solid line = existing Read More

Warsaw Work Horses – Part III (Rubber-Tyred Fleet)

Unlike parts 1+2 we can only show you a selection of the road (incl. road/rail) vehicles owned by the tramway company. Most photos were taken inside the huge ZETiT complex (i.e. the permanent way and workscar depot in Obozowa) – those taken at other locations are marked. Many more vehicles were seen and many of Read More
