Vinnitsa numbering update

filed on: 14.02.2012 (14th Feb 2012)

The final shipment of Mirage trams to Vinnitsa was reported here in November, with movies of these 12 cars leaving Zürich and arriving in Vinnitsa being added later. The latest edition of Tram magazine (No 109) has published the Vinnitsa numbers of these cars (333-344). The table below shows the numbering of all ex-Zürich in Vinnitsa, independently of whether these cars are currently in use.

In October, the demise of the Karpfen type (229-252) was reported. However the movie linked above shows one of these units being used to help unload the Mirages on arrival in Vinnitsa.
