I will try to be there for the open door day and also for the first day in service. Thanks for putting them here.

Yesterday I was in Paris and rode Tram 6 from end to end and back again. Those Lohr single rail trams are breathtaking, both visually and technically. The one rail goes down the centerline of the tram and guides it. It actually runs on rubber tires like some of the Métro equipment.

They had an open door weekend/open house at the new tram depot on 23-24 SEP 17. I rode down on the train and enjoyed the event. There was all kinds of food and drink and several musical groups that took turns playing. There were many displays in the new depot and around it. Visitors could go in one of the new trams and another one was going around the depot on a circular test track which people could ride in and 106 did the honors, at least on the Sunday.. Service starts on 10 DEC 17 and I plan to be there for that. That is also the same day the new funicular line from the Grand Duchesse Charlotte Bridge down to an existing rail line far below opens. I plan to ride both end to end and back.

I like the design of the CAF trams but it's a shame they didn't put all that colored glass into the form or a rainbow with the colors being in the correct order as they has almost all of the colors they needed.

Access to the event was from the main rail station on a shuttle bus service that ran every 15 minutes. It really was my lucky day when I rode to the event in CFL (Lxbg Railways) bus number.......wait for it.......13!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am the self-declared world's largest fan of the number 13 and for some reason I had never seen this bus before. On the way back, I rode into town on CFL bus.......31.......which happens to be the reverse of 13.

I noticed there are NO grab rails anywhere on the seats. This happened during my ride on the test loop. I wonder how that got overlooked???

European standards are different than American standards. Also depends on what the manufacturer and the government agreed upon.

Well, trams in Brussels and in Rotterdam don’t have grab rails on their seats either

I made a comment to Luxtram about this issue and suggested the undelivered trams should come from CAF with this feature and the existing ones should be retrofitted with them if possible. Luxtram said it was a good idea and they would look into it. There won't be any more new trams here for a while as the entire system will not be open until 2021 or 2022. I told them the present situation was not good for children and seniors.
