You must be joking... In Germany alone there are at least 55 cities with tram networks and I would bet that more than 80% of them has cars younger than 5 years

Some very nice designs there - particuarly Bordeaux and Lyon. In Britain, there are many proposals for more tram networks, particuarly in London after the success of the Croydon Tramlink and also across regional cities. That said, France and Germany are probably the world leaders in modern urban tram networks.

ULF (=ultra low floor, the name is program) in Vienna

Vienna has one of the most extensive tram networks in the world. It currently renews the vehicles. 150 ULF's have allready been brought into service, another 150 will follow soon.

Its said that its the tram with the lowest entrance height worldwide.
