Mirage as exhibition tram

filed on: 14.01.2010 (14th Jan 2010)

Reports on suggest that the withdrawn Mirage tram 1626 is being converted to an exhibition tram for static display to inform about the Tram Zürich West project. The new tram line which is currently under construction will connect Escher Wyss Platz to Bahnhof Altstetten (North side) and will open in December 2011.

This is not the first exhibition tram to be used to inform on this project. Between 2005 and 2007, standard trailer 768 stood in front of Schiffbau. I am not sure where 1626 will be located.

The previous exhibition tram, 768, has been sold to the transport author, bus preservationist and tour organiser, Jürg Biegger. His website is, and includes information on his preserved buses, his books, and the tours he is operating. The tram can be seen on a photo here.
