Afair those plans was cancelled. Right now there are several projects on low floor trams in Russia.

LVS-2005 for Piter by PTMZ and KTM 71-630 for Moscow by UKVZ

both as i heard on phase of assembling first model

here is info for 71-630 (in russian of course)
http://tram.ruz.net/tramcars/71630/

can't find anything for LVS-2005. they was talking that first model will be completed by the end of 2005, but it seems postponed by few months.
I'm not sure if LVS-2005 is tram-train.

But I do not expect some good designs...

There several more projects of low floor one car trams. Some of them already in service.



New Croatian looks pretty good.

BTW, NT2200 cost about 2.5€ million or 3 million U$ FOB... Anyone interested purchasing them for there respective cities, call Koncar lol,

Koncar is a company responsible for making these trams and they are part of consortia of companies called Cro-Tram Consortium..

Are the track gauge narrower for these trams than the more common tramways or LRT networks from other cities? Or is it the same all throughout? The trams seems very narrow but maybe they are wider in person? Please confirm.

God damn it!! We need those trams in Santiago!! They're as beautiful and modern as the ones from Alstom, Bombardier and Siemens + that these croatian trams are less expensive.

I'm as deeply impressed as the first time I saw crotram pictures!

Thanks for the thoughts.

If anyone is interested in seeing these trams, one will be on show at this years "Berlin International Transport Fair" which is being held between 19-22 September.

So far the 35th tram rolled out yesterday on the Zagreb network. Therefore half of the first batch of 70 trams are operational on the streets. By Xmas this year 50 trams should be functioning with the last one rolled out early next year.

The good news is that Zagreb city council will order a second batch of 70 trams, taking the total to 140 units by the end of next year.

Other news is that the first tram completed its first 50,000 km test and as expected passed with flying colours. This has encouraged the CroTram consortium to commence promoting the possible export of this tram outside of Croatia.

On 26th September, the new tram will go for its first test run outside of Croatia. It will be thoroughly tested in the Serbian captial of Belgrade which want to purchase these trams for their network so as to replace the old cars still in use.

After Belgrade, the tram goes on tests runs in Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Poland & Germany.

Hopefully we'll see some orders placed from other Europeans cities soon.

BTW - This is one of only 5 low floor model trams produced in Europe!

You're welcome.

And that's the spirit! That's how I like things turning out for CroTram! I really love their design, it's quite unique and their interiors are very modern in all senses. I like what I'm reading on those plans to introduce them soon in other european countries, and hopefully soon we'll be having those trams in a South American capital (my wish)...

Btw, do you know which european cities that will be testing CroTrams after Belgrade? Praha? Sofia? ...?

Thanks for the information btw.

I'm not too sure in which order, but I know its Bratislava, Sofia, Bucharest as definates.

The only other bit of news is that CroTram might have been successful in its first tender. Word has it that they succesfully won the bid to supply 10 initial trams to the Polish city of Lodz. Hopefully I can get this confirmed.

These new trains are very beautiful. Some Brazilian cities would have to adopt this type of transport.
