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 bahnhofplatz.net has pulled together precisely this information.
Tram 2000 first series
2001 Höngg (renamed Street-Parade in 2001, name removed 2004)
2004 Höngg (transferred from 2001)
2005 Industriequartier (removed 2007?, now special livery tram)
2034 Briefly and inofficially carried the name Basel in 1977
2039 Rennweg (transferred to 2043)
2040 Rechts der Limmat
2043 Rennweg (transferred from 2039, previously Nancy)
Tram 2000 second series
2070 Aussersihl Hard
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.
