Zürich in T&UT — part two

filed on: 26.04.2005 (26th Apr 2005)

The May edition of Tramways and Urban Transit (No 809, pp180-184) features the second (and final part) of the Zürich article by the author of this website. The contribution entitled "Zürich: The Cobra rules, all above ground", traces the newer history of the tram system (from the abortive U-Bahn project to the present) and discusses future developments (Tram Zürich West, Stadtbahn Glattal, Stadtbahn Limmattal). In terms of rolling stock, the Tram 2000 and Cobra types are presented. The five-page article has nine photos by the author.

The other main articles in the magazine are concerned with the new route 25 in Rotterdam, the acquisition of ex-Halle Tatra 902 by Crich, and the Vicinal museum at Thuin (Belgium).
