Though I remember some bad sections of track in Boston, I haven't seen any track as bad as in that video in the United States. I have experienced wheels with flat spots in the United States. "Clunk! Clunk! Clunk! ..." I also have experienced demonstrations of how the flat spots occur. It usually involves emergency breaking with the wheels sliding due to a motor vehicle turning in front of the train.

Let's perhaps look at the UK for some well built, nicely maintained tram systems to contrast against these examples! Just to show tram transport at its best.

Manchester:


Blackpool:


Croydon (London):


Similar systems also exist in Sheffield, Birmingham, Nottingham and Edinburgh.

The PCC, still in use on the F-Line in San Francisco, the Mattapan High Speed Line in Boston, the Girard Avenue Line in Philadelphia, and a few other cities.

Can someone provide some numbers regarding the energy consumation of the old and new trams? In Romania, at the first order for the new Astra Imperio tram (Siemens based), the chairman of Astra said that energy consumation of 0,63 KW/KM is the best in the world...Can someone provide some details?

Do they have air-conditioning? That makes a different basis for comparison.

How? T1 to T4 were basically PCC technology. CKD Tatra built over 18,600, the biggest number in the world.
