antique Russian car # 106

Dear AlekseyVT,
I may have published this under the wrong thread but
I hope you can answer some questions about a Russian Tram # 106 with single axle trucks currently in the San Francisco USA Municipal railway collection. It hasn't been used in quite awhile as it tracks very poorly on the rails and I was hoping to find out some technical information so as to solve the problem. the one thing I noticed was that the tires had virtually no taper to them which didn't seem correct. also it has a very unique truck style, using single axle trucks with the pivot point or king pin set behind the wheel instead of directly in the center of the truck as with most tram trucks. this gives a caster wheel action for the trailing truck but as the front truck has it's pivot point behind the axle ,it seems it would result in pushing the truck to side.I'd like to post some pictures of but so far haven't figured out how to start an album. I can find very few cars ever built with sort of single axle truck. perhaps someone else has some information on how such trucks worked....or didn't work as the case may be.
I hope you can help on this unique car ( actually given to the city by the people of Russia (I think back in the 1980's) bud44750

Woonsocket54, thanks for the link! It's possible to switch into English at this website.

bud44750, I'm not technical specialist. I have already sent your request at the link which was posted above. May be, there are English-speaking technical specialists among the users of this website.

You can to register on this site http://transphoto.ru/ (this is site about Russia's electric kinds of transport) for direct communication with Russian tram fans.

As you can see, I posted here prerevolutionary history of Tram in the city of Oryol (where tramcar #106 operated before moving into United States) and already prepared material about interwar period in the history of Oryol Tram. During my work, I read few forums about the local history of Oryol.

Local residents of the Oryol city very much regretted about the decision to send this tramcar into United States (it was happened in 1986 as a result of Gorbachev's policy). They would like this tramcar to operate in their own city instead of standing in the San Francisco without operation. So, they will glad to see this tramcar in the work at American streets again.

3 single truck OPORTO trams

Hi all, I just learned from a good friend that there may be 3 vintage single truck, clerestory roof trams, originally from OPORTO ? available in Portland Oregon, USA , if a city or individual was looking for a vintage tram. I believe they are in running condition.

The round building at the right side belongs to the Moscow Market in Kazan. This known trade store is officially named "Tubeteika" because it was built in same form and decorated in same style (tubeteika is a Central Asian cap, today worn in Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan, as well as in Muslim-populated regions of Russia - mainly Tatars):

YEKATERINBURG METRO

May 21, 2012. The "ghost" station "Chkalovskaya" ("Valery Chkalov"), which planned to be completed within next two months. There were installed "portholes" with the portraits of the members of legendary Soviet crew, who participated in a 63-hour flight from Moscow, Soviet Union to Vancouver, Washington, United States via the North Pole on an Tupolev ANT-25 plane (June 18–20, 1937), a non-stop distance of 8811 kilometres. The crew members were Valery Chkalov (command pilot), Georgy Baydukov (co-pilot) and Alexander Belyakov (flight navigator). The flight pioneered the polar air route from Europe to the American Pacific Coast.

I doubt any present-day Tatars would be caught wearing a tubeteika. It would look too ridiculous in modern Tatarstan.

My repost:
I can actually expand upon part of the reason why #106 isn't operating. It's mainly because the agency that operates the historic streetcars (MUNI) has been focusing on other streetcars at the moment in preparation for a second streetcar line (which due to the lack of turning loop at it's southern terminus, requires double end cars to operate) that's going to be operating soon.
