Named trams

filed on: 22.03.2010 (22nd Mar 2010)

Named Tram 2000 Several people have recently written to me asking for a list of named tramcars in Zürich. Quite by coincidence (or maybe not?), a discussion on has pulled together precisely this information.

Tram 2000 first series

2001 Höngg (renamed Street-Parade in 2001, name removed 2004)
2002 Seebach
2003 Unterstrass
2004 Höngg (transferred from 2001)
2005 Industriequartier (removed 2007?, now special livery tram)
2006 Fluntern
2007 Enge
2008 Friesenberg
2009 Triemli
2010 Wipkingen
2011 Örlikon
2012 Wiedikon
2021 Albisrieden
2030 Hirslanden
2034 Briefly and inofficially carried the name Basel in 1977
2037 Oberstrass
2038 Witikon
2039 Rennweg (transferred to 2043)
2040 Rechts der Limmat
2041 Hottingen
2042 Altstetten
2043 Rennweg (transferred from 2039, previously Nancy)
2044 Wollishofen
2045 Riesbach

Tram 2000 second series

2070 Aussersihl Hard
2080 Schwamendingen

Numbers in bold indicate trams still carrying their names.

With the exception of Basel, Nancy and Street Parade, all these names take after after districts, neighbourhoods or areas of Zürich. Some names appear to be matched to the numbers randomly while others echo the city district (Kreis) numbers. Besides the names, the corresponding arms are also carried.
