Here we can see tramline at the wooden bridge across Dnieper River. But look at those weird colored spots! Guess what is it?

Link

It's hard to believe in this, but there were no digital photocameras in Russia one hundred years ago! So, technology of color photographing was no perfect! Due to slow shutter speed (1-3 seconds), it was impossible to made color photo of moving objects! Now let's look at the color channels, and all will be clear! We will see little "microfilm"

1) First moment (blue channel). One big spot. It's tramcar which is turning to the bridge and pedestrian who is walking to left


2) Second moment (green channel). Spot became less. It because tramcar already did turn and is moving on the bridge, and pedestrian is almost disappeared behind the left corner of the gate:

3) Last moment (red channel). Spot became very small. Tramcar almost disappeared from our view, and we don't see pedestrian anymore:

In 2013 Smolensk - the city which was ransacked many times by "civilized" European aggressors (Poles, Lithuanians, multi-national European armies of Napoleon and Hitler) - will celebrate own 1150-anniversary. Despite the fact, that in each case aggressors captured city, Battles of Smolensk helped to halt the advance of enemy troops into rest Russia, to weaken enemy military potential and given time to organize the defense. In the end, all it led to the Russian victories. In addition, 2011 is the year of 110-anniversary of Smolensk Tram. Next year will be celebrations devoted to 400-anniversary of liberation of Moscow and other Russian cities from Polish-Lithuanian occupants and 200-anniversary of Russian victory over Napoleon's Grande Armée. In preparation for the 1150-anniversary, will be implemented a program of modernization of city - the reconstruction and restoration of historical monuments, as well as roads, streets, bridges, underpasses, houses of culture; construction of living houses, institute corps, sport complexes and other municipal facilities.

In particular, by 2013 city authorities plan to buy 35 modern low-floor tramcars. Those tramcars (model 71-623, also known as KTM-23) will made at Wagon Works in Ust-Katav town, Chelyabinsk Region. Currently there are 19 such tramcars in Smolensk: 12 tramcars (71-623-01) and 7 tramcars (71-623-00). The first of those tramcars was made in July 2010 and operated in Smolensk since September 3, 2010. The newest tramcars were made in May 2011. Also, there is going reconstruction of tram tracks, because current bad condition of some tracks will have devastating effects on low-floor tramcars. This order of the tramcars of this or similar models is the second biggest in all post-Soviet history of Russian "tram cities" (after Perm Tramway).
