Mirage loses spring

filed on: 07.01.2005 (7th Jan 2005)

There has been some discussion on the BahnCH Yahoogroup and on TramForumBasel concerning an incident on 29th December when a spring broke loose from the roof of a Mirage tram on route 7 and caused parts of the ceiling to fall into the passenger compartment. A pensioner was hospitalised.

The spring concerned is one of those used to distribute the weight away from the centre bogie onto the motorised outer bogies. Following this incident, all trams of this type (1601-1726) are being inspected and are the springs fitted with additional protection. The operation is costing several 10 000 Franks.
