The latest edition of Tram magazine (81/03-05.2005) reports (among many many other things) that a new Cargotram trailer has been added to the fleet. This is converted from a former passenger trailer (This website assumes that no. 1990 is meant: a flat car originally modified for moving escalators and other large parts into the subway. It started its life as a Standard trailer). It is also stated that the siding to Werdhölzli recycling centre should be operational by early February 2005!
Furthermore, the magazine reports on the disposal of the withdrawn Forchbahn BDe4/4 and Bt4 cars. It states that 108 was cannibalised by TPC (Chablais) staff at Esslingen and that 16 and 101 are already in Madagascar.
The latest issue marks the 20th anniversary of Tram. This website sends its best wishes.
