I love places with such old-new contrasts.

The last time I used the Prague tram it went over some rough patches of track. Luckily it had good springs. Are the new sets as good in handling bad tracks as the old ones?

^ not all tracks are bad, but yes, there are still some sections with bad quality. Prague has 140 km of tram tracks so the network is quite large. I use tram in Prague quite often and it doesn't seem so bad to me. There was one inferior section at Letná in Prague 7, which is now under complete reconstruction. There are many brand new tracks too, e.g. in Barrandov. About the new trams: they are only going to be tested in 2009 in Prague, we will see how they do on Prague tram tracks...

Trams for Riga will be quite same as those for Prague, only with wider gauge 1524 mm and they will have air-conditioning system too...

What an absolutely luscious tribute to the T3s in Prague hkskyline. My mouth is watering like somebody put a plate of svickova in front of me!

They certainly have an iconic design association with the city, like the red buses in London. The Porsche tram doesn't cut it for me, but hopefully the 15T will become the new icon. Nevertheless no doubt Prague citizens will appreciate the comfort of a new tram rather than using an historic icon!

New ones are nice and modern, but I love the design of the old ones...especially since I grew up in Sarajevo, where we only had Tatra K2s

According to Skoda, these trams were designed by a collaboration between Skoda-Transport and Porshe...

Same here. I hope they will retain the old trams.

I remember tram number 18. Nostalgic.

I was in Prague a couple of months ago. I used almost all types of trams and the old ones are very well-maintained. We have the same in Sofia, but they're total shit! I just couldn't believe that these were the same trams.
