Hello!
My name is Paulo, but you also may call me Pablo Itt.
Last year I postted in SSC the Thread:

Breve Histórico dos Bondes do Rio de Janeiro.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1255029

Unfortunately it's in portuguese but, there's a site in english where you can learn more about trams in Rio and in Brazil.

http://www.tramz.com/

Nowdays the only tram in Rio is in Santa Teresa but, we have had one of the largest lines in the word in last century, until 1948.
Perhaps we'll have some moderns lines to de Olimpic Games in 2016.







I hope I could have helpped you.

The videos you've posted here is about Santo's previous tram, not Rio de Janeiro. However, thanks for those.

There is a plant for light rail, not modern tram around 2016, but it is not sure.

I'm sorry but I don't agree with you. In the first video you can see the Sugar Loaf (Pão de Açucar), in the second you see Largo da Carioca e Tabuleiro da Baiana (downtown) and in the last streets in Rio. In the video bellow (1932) you can see a short history of the city and part of the places with the same trams from the first video.

The project is about Porto Maravilha, where we will have the new trams.







Tram in Rio, more from Santa Teresa.

Santa Teresa Tramway is one of the most beautiful tram system in the world.
Is there any plan to rebuild tramways and tram network?

PABLO ITT, I was wrong, you're right. those videos are superb. They are about SG trams of Rio. Thank you very much for those rare videos.

I think Porto maravilla will get light rails, not modern trams. I read so.

However please clear that will it have light rail or modern tram. I may be wrong.

THE TRAMS OF MY CITY KOLKATA IS ALSO USING TROLLY POSES LIKE RIO DE JANEIRO TRAM.

COMPARE THE CURRENT NETWORK WITH THE PREVIOUS GIGANTIC NETWORK POSTED ON 1ST PAGE. ALL ROUTES HAS NOW CLOSED EXCEPT THE CURRENT ROUTES.

That map does not show another part of the city, the country side in those days (1960), not now any more.

Rio – Capital of the State

Rio – suburb and other cities
Campo Grande, known here as "Big Field".

Yes, there’s a project to rebuild the line from Dois Irmãos to Silvestre, where there would be the reconnection to the Corcovado’s lines. Then you will get the tram in downtown and arrive at the Cristo Redentor.

http://www.tramz.com/tw/lam12.html

After 1967 there was this line called Silvestre, this was the most beautiful, there was a connection to Corcovado Lines, but a great storm had destroyed it.



I don't know if you can understand because you don't know Rio.
In this image you can see the Maracanã, stadium of saucer and below a line just on the top of the mountain called Sumaré and on the left Alto da Boa Vista. They were in the middle of the forest, Floresta da Tijuca, one of the largest urban forest in Brazil.

You can see more images on these pages:

Thanks Pablo. It is nice to hear that news, this will be more powerful connection with Corcovado Railway. Santa Teresa Tram deserve the best.
How sad is story of Alto da Boa Vista Tram. I wish it was rebuilt again.

Accident on Rio's tram kills 5 and injury 57. Tram system is closed indefinitely

An extremely serious accident occurred yesterday with a tram in a hilly area of Santa Teresa neighborhood. An overcrowded tram (capacity 44, carrying at least 65) derailed, sled for 50 meters downhill and eventually crashed into a pole, rolling over.

Among those hurt, many foreigners. The conductor died also.

The tram who crashed was an old streetcar model. It had collided, yesterday morning, with a bus (no injuries or major damages reported), and it was put back into service the same day.

The whole tram system, not really relevant as public transportation in the city, was shut down indefinitely until further notice, including the newer, modern trams that operate there.

I attach photos and maps from Brazilian press. The tram was completely destroyed.

Yes, Rio de janeiro must have newer tramcars. Those trams are almost 100 years old, and truly backdated.

Better late than never. New trams are very much essential for Rio.

The new trams look nice. Do you know what the power source will be? Are they going to be diesel or electric? There is no overhead catenary power or a third rail on the ground between the running rails shown on the video. It would be awesome if they could be battery powered but I think we are still a few years away from this.
