Rolling stock roundup
filed on: 22.08.2005 (22nd Aug 2005)
Just arrived back from a trip to Brussels, Gent and the Isle of Man so apologies if I've missed any important news! The trip was wonderful, as were the trams and the weather.
According to reports on bahnonline.ch, the first Mirage type trams (Be4/6 1601-1726) have been scrapped. The trams concerned are 1654 and 1691. Further withdrawn units stored at Wollishofen are 1610/1/90 and (two?) others. The forum thread is here.
The number of teddy-bears being carried on the front of trams is also rapidly dwindling. Some appear to have been lost or stolen and others removed to make way for signs advertising various forthcoming sports events. The bears should last until 18th September.
