It would be nice to see some Belgrade tram thread.Singidunum said:Well so so. They want to completely reconstruct it because it's already 30 years old. But trams are runing. They are ugly but still serving well (they were all refabricated in 2004 except of those Basel ones which are very old and they shake the whole street when they pass. But we couldn`t reject a gift)
I doubt that they ever do this, it would be very expensive to regauge all tram network, many routes should be changed : I doubt that the part in Kalemegdan facing french embassy, the route of the 7 in Resavska could afford double 1435 tracks and I don't even speak about the curves. The problem is that the lines are very old, from the time when streetcars were very short and narrow.starchitecte said:An other problem with the trams in Belgrade is that they are 1m tracks instead of 1,435m that is for the metro so they should change all tracks in the city and buy new trams
I can't confirm anything but I've heard too that they intend to put progressively all this first line under ground, part by part.starchitecte said:I'e heard that the underground sections of the metro was also planned to become sections for real metro later. Does anyone can confirm this information or if somebody knows somethink about that.
I understand that the model is shown pro forma but what bothers me is that they've chosen a tramway-style vehicle and not a metro-style.Stevan said:^^ I am pretty sure this car is just used for the demonstration.
Yup, AFAIK metric tramway route on Kralja Aleksandra will be kept and they just want to make it dual-gauge :Stevan said:Anyway there are some tracks that Metrocars and Tramcars can share
