filed on: 07.04.2005 (7th Apr 2005)
The current edition of Tramways and Urban Transit (No 808, April 2005, pp130-134) features the first part of an article on Zürich and its trams by the author of this website. The article is entitled "Zürich: Top city — thanks to light rail". Part one sets the scene and covers the history of the system from the beginnings to the 1960s (introduction of the Mirage type and Tiefbahn planning and rejection).
The article features a colour system map drawn by the author showing existing, closed and planned tram and trolleybus routes. There are also seven photographs by the author.
The other main articles in this edition cover the metro in Sao Paulo, light rail develoments in London and Stuttgart's Zuffenhausen tram museum.
Tramways & Urban Transit is a monthly magazine published jointly by LRTA and Ian Allan Publishing. It is available by subscription. Individual copies can also be bought directly from the publishers and some newsstands.
