Another follow-up info:

The trainsets were built between 1979 and 1990. The particular train in the picture (# 4946) in Ütrecht is from December 1990, so merely 17.5 years old.

The bricks you see are not visible due to laziness or lack of maintnenance. Its done deliberately to lay the walls dry in order to be able to renovate with a lasting positive result.

That means, while they may look a bit oldfashioned, they are a lot newer than our other trams, those where built in 1983.

Yes. The design is old and old-fashioned, but you cannot expect technical problems.

The new T1 trainsets for U6. Bland, if you ask me. At least they're air-conditioned.

The new tram would be fine if it had decent seats instead of those ugly plastic ones.

Unfortunately all seats will be replaced with plastic ones, for hygienic reasons.

Actually that's not one of the new trams. It's an A or a B ULF. The new ULF A1 trams, look a bit different.

Here's a picture of an A1. The differences are small, but you will notice the different lights, e.g. the blinkers are round and face inwards. Also the bumper is slightly different. The display has a narrower font than on the older A and B ULFs.

However the real difference is inside the tram:


It is fully air-conditioned, hence the ceiling is different. There are some more minor differences, but the most striking one is the plastic seats.
