Some Australian tram action. Trams in service, entering or about to enter service in Adelaide:

'H' Class tram. These trams service the Adelaide to Glenelg tram line, and have been in service since 1929.







The new Flexity trams that will begin arriving in Adelaide from Germany in December 2005:

70 TMK2200 are first batch of new trams for city of Zagreb. It is likely over 150 TMK2200 to be built for ZET (Zagreb Electric Trams), 10 for each line. 70 new trams could only replace oldest trams on streets of Zagreb, which where built over 40 years ago, all imported trams from Czech republic will be sold or scraped by the end of 2005, 17 TMK2100 (domestically manufactures 3 section trams) and 35 German trams imported in late 80's would remain in service sometimes through 2010. It is very likely all TMK 2100 Trams would switch to night service and German trams might remain in use as circumstances demand. It is likely final number of TMK 2200 in service with ZET might well be over 150 trams; and if ZET plans to construct 3 more tram lines with in next 5-10 year period comes to fruition than number of tram in service might increase substantially. ZET is likely to donate all of its Tatra Trams (45-50 in service) also imported in mid 80's. Older Tatra Trams (2 car trams) will be scraped and never to ce the light of a day, lol.


TMK 2200 Being fited out





Photos curtsey of Bubach

TMK would most probably grace streets of Osijek - 32 trams are likely to be the ordered (4 tram lines, 7+1 tram per line). If Croatian Government helps in financing new tram infrastructure in Cities of Rijeka, Split, Varazdin, Zadar, Dubrovnik and Pula it is most likely boys at Cro-Tram consortium will have plenty of work for some time.

Sofia has expressed interest of procuring 100+ TMK 2200 (new trams), few other cities in Europe and USA are also interested for this tram, as tram has design features which could be accustomed to each customer - many practical designs and variable gauge system can be employed. Cro-Tram consortium is one of only 5 manufactures of low-floor trams in Europe and only 8 such manufactures exit in the world today.

Tram costs 2.1 million to manufacture and on the street, if Exported tram price will not exceed 2.55 million US$ FOB. For guidance Simmens low floor tram are 3.75 - 4.25 million US$, Skoda - 2.95 - 3.25 million (they only built 4 so far and had loads of problems - all are out of service as a result), Alstom - 3.35 - 3.85 million US$, Bombardier - 3.55 - 3.85 million US$ and so on.

Current trams on streest of Zagreb...


TMK 2100 stats, Lenght 27.4m Width: 2.2m Max speed 58km, capacity: 44 seating and 120 standing. No in service with ZET: 17.




German Trams - forgot the name and type, sorry... No in service with ZET: 35



Old Czech Tatra trams - 80+ in service will be withdrawn from service by the end of 2007.



Old Croatian made trams (in 50's and 60's) - will no longer be in service by the year's end.



Tatra T4YU tramcar - 45-50 in service - after refurbishment most likely to be donated.

I have a question about the new Melbourne trains. Do they have problems with them or are they working well?? Because the trains are from Siemens and they had very big problems with the Combinos last year.

They were recalled 2 years(??) ago because there was a fault (braking system I believe) but it's all been replaced and they're working well now.

Its design is very weird...

Thanks for the pics everyone, what a great tour.
I LOVE those Lyon trams.
I think that it is important to note the difference between N.A. and European definitions.
Trams in Europe are generally called streetcars in NA and except for SanFrancisco and Toronto and a few other small systems they are ussually only 1or2 km heritage/tourist lines.
Streetcars here ussually mean LRT.......light rapid transit like the pics of Edmonton you saw or the CTrain in Calgary ... www.members.shaw.ca/lrtincalgary/
They are rapid transit on ROW and own rail lines and large subway like stations.
Just so we can make sure what we are talking and referring to.

Nope, the old W class trams were recalled then after a couple of crashes - they had to replace the braking systems and replace the trolleypoles with pantographs. They're only running on the tourist lines because they're the slowest (after the horse drawn carriages that do tours) and nosiest things on the roads.

And they're "classes", not "series"

The D class Combino trams have two variants - D1 and D2 depending on the length.

And you've unfortunately picked out a host that disallows hotlinking.

Nah, I was talking about the Combinos. They were recalled a few years ago.

I realised just after I posted that they're classes...but it was too late and I couldn't be stuffed editing it.

Fixing up the pics now
