Pedaler tram moves to safety

filed on: 19.01.2009 (19th Jan 2009)

"Pedaler" is the name given in Zürich to the lighter version of the Swiss Standard Tram. 1501-1552 were delivered between 1941 and 1951, with the last vanishing from service in the late 1980s. Three examples have survived: 1501 was converted to a snow broom for TPC, 1530 is a heritage car in Zürich and 1517 stands in the gardens of Wagerenhof, a home for the mentally handicapped in Uster, a small town not far from Zürich. Despite its outdoor location, the latter car is still in excellent condition. It has recently hit the news as it was found to be in the way of a building project. Its scrapping could fortunately be averted through the generous support of two companies, Edel und Stahl Metallabau AG (Stäfa) and Welti Furrer AG who moved it to a nearby location free of charge.
