Very lucky that death toll was not higher.

aren't those cars too old now to be running? They look from the Soviet days on the pic above. The derailment looked scary on the vid.

Sure, that too, but hopefully was the very first action.

2100? We'll probably be using Star Trek transporters by then to move around - all subway, train, light-rail and road networks will have turned either into museums...or ruins.

(no, just kidding. But a plan termed 'Prague 2100' can't be taken more seriously than a fanciful dream)

Not really old. It is T3. still thousands of them in Russia in use as well. It was very successful tram - safe, efficient, reliable and with good price. USSR bought thousands of them.

derailing more looks like result of speeding

On May 8, 2008 three new metro stations in Prague, Czech republic were open.

The C (red) line has been relonged by Strizkov, Prosek and Letnany stations covering northern commie block areas and creating:

world curiosity - underground station out of city suburbs in colza fields

Weird station in the middle of a field. In Kiev they built a subway station in the middle of a forest (Chervony Khutir). Also, the BART system in the San Francisco area passes through the desert and mountains.
