VOLGOGRAD METROTRAM

The Volgograd Metrotram is a light rail system operating in Volgograd, Russia. By 2011, it consisted of 19 stations on one line, paralleling the Volga River from the northern suburbs of Volgograd to its downtown core for a total length of 13.5 kilometres. Most of the Metrotram line shares a surface-level right of way with a previously constructed railway line for 10.2 kilometres, in a manner similar to that of the south leg of the C-Train system in Calgary, for example; the three downtown stations, on the other hand, were built underground over a total length of 3.3 kilometres, meeting design standards consistent with existing Russian Metro systems.

The Volgograd Metrotram was inaugurated on 5 November 1984, and presently serves 50 million passengers per year. During 26 years of the exploitation there happened only two significant events. In April 2007 Metrotram stop "37th School" was renamed into "14th Gymnasium". On December 29, 2008 was added intermediate stop "TRK Europa City Mall" near the trade store with same name.

On December 1, 2011 Metrotram line was extended on 4.2 kilometres with three underground stations - "Profsoyuznaya" ("Labor Unions"), "TYuZ" ("Theatre for Young Spectators") and "Yelshanka". It became possible only after replacement of the tram carriages on the new models with automatic doors on both sides (the trams are switching from right-hand traffic on left-hand traffic during entry into underground part of the Metrotram system and back).
