Line 17 of Moscow tram is one of the busiest and actuaaly can be considered an LRT line.

Hope trains will be quite soon long and low-floor ones.

Stadler Minsk LRV on test in Moscow
Friday, March 20, 2015



MOSCOW tram operator Mosgortrans has begun four months of trials using a prototype V853000M Metelica low-floor LRV supplied by the Stadler Minsk joint venture of Stadler Rail and Belkommunmash, Belarus

The bidirectional vehicle has been developed specifically for the CIS region and is designed to operate in ambient temperatures ranging from -40 to +40oC.

The 26.7m-long vehicle will accommodate up to 250 passengers, 58 of them seated, and has a maximum speed of 75km/h. The LRV will undergo tests both with and without passengers as part of an evaluation of trams from different manufacturers which Mosgortrans is carrying out in preparation for an order for new vehicles

The first one is just a special occasion bus.

The second is a new development, an electric bus using lithium-titanate batteries capable of being recharged within 6 - 10 minutes. I thought it was a super capacitor bus, but it turned out I was wrong.

Moscow trams. :)

An Old Tatra T3 near Prospect Mira.



All the following was taken at Krestyanslaya zastava.





Finally, I managed to snap 2 low-floor models together: a one from St-Petersburg and a KTM-23.
