Seen today on route 10: 2111 with low floor centre section (Sänfte).
Being the 12th rebuild to enter service (or the 11th WinPro-built Sänfte), this marks the halfway point of the rebuild programme (all 23 units of the 2099-2121 batch are being rebuilt). With the first WinPro unit entering service on 6th May last, the delivery rate has been considerably higher than the one per month intended.
The first Sänfte (2113) was bult in VBZ's own workshops and has been in service since 25.10.2001. Experience with this led to the order of 22 identical units from WinPro. Centre sections are buing built in Winterthur and fitted to the trams by VBZ in their own workshops.
