It's not exactly in the middle of nowhere, its meant to serve Port Moody/Port Coquitlam/etc in order to connect them with the Skytrain. It was originally supposed to be a Skytrain line, but politics and people who want to be more isolated brought the plan down. In fact, there is already a connector at one station: see here

Canada Line is like the Skytrain basically, but it will go underground for most of the Vancouver part. The vehicles will not be the same though, as they will be built by Rotem (nor will it join Skytrain tracks anywhere)

Cool stuff, 5 European cities have shown great interest for new Croatian tram, now that Cambino is no longer an option many are looking to new Croatian trams to see how it does on streets.

Cities in question plan procurement of new low floor trams and they are impressed with Zagreb Tram performance, so much Warsaw, Bratislava, Riga, Sofia and Belgrade have requested demonstration on streets of there cities.

Cro-tram Consortium has set aside 2 trams that will tour 5 countries interested in the tram, demonstrating the tram for few weeks even giving rides to ordinary ppl on the streets.

Cro-Tram if awarded the contract (most likely in region of 500-55- new trams) would achive great success for Cro-tram Consortia...

Sorry guys from germany, but with due respect to the german technology... i hate thier tram designs. Its kinda the differnce between a 80's car and a 2000 model(even if the earlier one had a beter engine).

They havent introduced that aerodynamic shape ( smooth curves), but instead use the old style. It sucks and bad choices of color too

Does anyone have pics from Grenoble, France. I heard they have got some cool looking new trams thsi yr?

no offense signor storms, but san jose trams are perhaps the ugliest ever made. you gotta admit. we both love the bay, but those trams are very brutallist.

i will agree with you that Barcelona has arguably the best trams period, though.

I never said that they looked good. And Barcelona has decent looking ones, but I prefer the fronts for the Bordeaux ones anyways. And they have that tricky 3rd rail in the ground technology

For the uninitiated, the picture below shows one of the notoriously ugly San Jose (California) light rail vehicles:



For more information, see the following website:

http://world.nycsubway.org/us/sanjose/

Something else I've noticed is that most new trams have skirts that cover the wheels, which contributes to their shiny and sleek appearance. After a few years of service, the skirts disappear and the trams no longer look so shiny and sleek.

MetroManila MRT 3 is supposed to be inheriting a bunch of older trams from the Austria, apparently they have been used only in some capacity and have a lot of usefull life in them. They're to be refurbished by the manufacturer . Who this is I don't know? Any idea what this looks like and who the manufacturers are and what sort of system upgrades they'll be having. They're supposed to expand a current line using some Czeck trains acquired 1 years ago, so they probably run on similar systems.

-The future tramway of Murcia-

Hi! In Murcia (spain) we will see and use a new tramway!!
Murcia is a city on the south-east of Spain. The population is 180.000 in the city, but in the metropolitan area the population is, aproximately, 600.000

Some companies are interest in it, and they were presented the projects to the City Mayor.

Varias empresas estan interesadas en el proyecto, y ya han presentado sus proyectos al alcalde.


There are three projects of Tramway:

Estos son los proyectos de tranvia:
