I like that Skoda tram!

I didn't know that Madrid had tram tunnels. Very nice! Spain really is one of the greatest tram nations.

In the first half of the twentieth century, and throughout the world, Spain was a country of trams. In the second half the "modern" was to remove the tram and is now recovering slowly, very slowly and with a very different philosophy to the twentieth century.

As for the Madrid tramway tunnels are simply to access underground stations that are in the three lines "Metro Ligero" (tram). These lines connect Madrid with its metropolitan area (ML2 and ML3) or different new districts of Madrid (ML1). The line ML1 is largely underground because it have to cross major highway systems.

ML2
ML3
ML1

In other Spanish cities there are tunnels for tramway service, Alicante for example, and the Seville Metro is underground (mostly) but with streetcar vehicles. Valencia are also underground stations of tram.

There are at the moment 3 different tram types being used at the same time in Helsinki, Finland. If we don't count couple of tourist trams.


Picture by Daniel Federley


Oldest ones are these ones build in the 70's and 80's. Most recent change was to lower the floor.

Picture by Daniel Federley


Variotram's that were deployed in 1999 and have had various problems ever since thanks to weather and hills in Helsinki.

And here's the new one, build by Finnish Transtech Oy. Just started some weeks ago on a regular route. 40 will be build and there's option for 90 more as the tram lines are being expanded, thanks to downtown expansion.

True, just like so many European countries. But Spain is recovering well. It has a good tram network in most large and many middle-sized cities with modern and often interestingly designed vehicles.

Well, I appreciate your compliments on the tram in Spain, but not to do triumphalism, not bad, but could be better.

In any case if there are projects underway, Metro Málaga (a tram ride partly underground and partly outdoor), Granada tram (with path partially underground), train-tram of the Bay of Cadiz ..

CAF 801 BAY OF CADIZ - Vehicles tested by conventional train tracks (northern Spain):

All trams at that time were similar.

"Tranvía" is the Spanish word for streetcar or tram.

Thank you!

I like walkable cities with trams. The centre should not be dominated by cars.

The tram is much easier to reach than the metro. The tram holds more passengers than the bus.

I have travelled by tram in the following cities:

Norrköping
Tallinn
St Petersburg
Prague
