Travels 2018 – Part I (Denmark, Ukraine, VDVA Belgrade & Germany)

We started the year with a visit to the National Tramway Museum in Denmark to witness the big celebrations there (40 years!) with a short side-trip to Aarhus. In May we went to Ukraine again. We had travelled to most of the countries’s systems before but we had never managed to go East of Charkiw Read More

Kiev Works Cars

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 Some cars have been withdrawn in the last few years but a few of those still remain stored on property.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

Travels 2017 – Part VI (Ukraine in June: Kiev to Zaporizhia)

More to see in Kiev. We then headed East to Charkiw and ended up in Dnipro (which was also our base for the two other systems nearby). Driving around the country in a big coach is slightly better than driving around in a car (you don’t feel the potholes so much), but even on this Read More

Travels 2017 – Part V (Ukraine in June: Lviv to Kiev)

Second visit of Ukraine this year! A well deserved repeat visit to all the systems shown. The group met in Kiev and we all flew to Lviv. From there our coach took us back to Kiev. day 1 – Київ/Kyjiw (Kiew/Kiev) day 2 – Львів (Lviv/Lemberg) day 3 – Тернопіль (Ternopil/Tarnopol) day 3 – Хмельницький Read More

Travels 2017 – Part IV (Ukraine in April: Odessa to Kiev)

Heading South again we arrived in Odessa. The last leg took us from Odessa back to Kiev. During this tour by car we had thus visited all the systems in Central Ukraine (Western Ukraine we had done in 2016 and Donbas in the East was to follow soon). Most of the roads we used were Read More

Travels 2017 – Part I (Ukraine in April: Kiev to Poltava)

Having done the Western parts of Ukraine in 2016 we were heading East this time. By car from Kiev to Charkiw and then South ending up in Odessa. As usual we visited all the systems en-route, both trams and trolleybuses. We knew we were coming back in June with big group so we used this Read More

Travels 2016 – Part VIII (Ukraine in March: Vinnytsia & Kiev)

More exploring in Vinnytsia. A fast intercity type train took us back to Kiev. Most other trains we used were of the old “long distance sleeping car types” (very uncomfortable to sit in) that all depart in the late evening. Our last day was spent again on the Eastern side of the Kiev system (an Read More

Travels 2016 – Part II (Ukraine in March: Kiev, Konotop & Bila Zerkwa)

From Kiev we also took a train to Konotop (no depot visit because this was a Saturday and nobody could be found to let us in) and to Bila Zerkwa we went by Marshrutka. day 5 – Konotop (the only visit we did without a depot visit – but it was easy to take photos Read More

Travels 2016 – Part I (Ukraine in March: Kiev & Chernihiv)

Our first visit to Ukraine (the first of many to come). Of course there is lots to see in Kiev. We also did a daytrip by car from Kiev to Chernihiv. day 1 + 2 – Київ/Kyjiw (Kiew/Kiev) – Western system with visit to future museum at old bus depot no. 3 plus depot visits Read More
