Combino tram Amsterdam



The combino has two entrances. One in the front and one in the rear part of the tram.
The doors in the middle of the trams are exit-only-doors.

Rear entrance with an inspector booth. The inspector sells tickets and provide (tourist) information.
Inside the booth there are two screens for the security camera’s.
The inspector can notice passengers via intercom, if they didn't pay or if they not properly behave.





The inspector can close the last section of the tram.
This is mostly during the night.

Can't forget the newest trams by Transtech as well. First one was delivered in 2014 with 40 of them delivered by 2018.

Tramway of Rio de Janeiro (VLT)



Rio de Janeiro Light Rail (Portuguese: VLT do Rio de Janeiro) is a modern light rail system serving Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The system is among several new public transport developments in the region ahead of the city's successful bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics. Its official name is VLT Carioca, the initialism "VLT" (which stands for Veículo leve sobre trilhos, literally Light vehicle over rails) being equivalent to the English term light rail. The first phase, consisting of a single 15-kilometre line between the Novo Rio Bus Terminal and Santos Dumont Airport and 18 stops, was inaugurated on 5 June 2016, two months ahead of the Olympics opening ceremony, with regular service beginning the following day. For the first month of operation, it was free of charge to ride, but only two trams were in service between noon and 15:00 on the section between Parada dos Museus in Praça Mauá and Santos Dumont Airport. The remainder of the line was opened and service was expanded to full-time operation on 12 July, although only 16 of the 18 stops on the line are in use. The network uses 32 Alstom Citadis 402 low-floor trams carrying 420 passengers each. They are bi-directional, air-conditioned, have seven sections, and eight doors per side. The first five trams were built in Alstom's facility in La Rochelle, France, and the remaining 27 were built in Alstom's facility in Taubaté, in the state of São Paulo. The trams are the first to use a combination of ground-level power supply (APS) and on-board supercapacitor energy storage (SRS) to eliminate overhead lines along the entire route. The remainder of the three-line, 28-km network will open in stages by the end of 2017. It is estimated that when the entire network is at full capacity, it would be able to eliminate 60% of buses and 15% of automobile traffic circulating in the city centre.

Manchester, UK

Some shots from the last year or so of Manchester Metrolink, which now has 120 cars in service and another extension (to Trafford Park) being built.











In the last picture 3022 is carrying a special livery including Worker Bees (a symbol of Manchester) to commemorate the 22 victims of the 22nd May 2017 bombing.

Llandudno, UK

Something a little different to the previous tramways. The Great Orme Tramway is cable operated and runs from Llandudno to the top of the Great Orme. There are only 4 cars and it runs in two sections with 2 cars on each.
