Zürich trolleybus numbering

filed on: 29.11.2005 (29th Nov 2005)

Hess Trolleybus for Zurich The website, Obus 269, of Jürgen Lehmann explains that Zürich's new Hess / Kiepe trolleybuses will be numbered 144-59 (for the single articulated variety) and 160-76 (for the double-articulated). The numbering thus follows on from the second batch of Mercedes / ABB vehicles (101-43), delivered in 1994. The new vehicles will replace the earlier batch (2-36) of 1988/89 (and number 1 of 1986) (*). The same source also indicates that the Geneva double-articulated vehicle that will be tested in Zürich next year will be delivered to Zürich directly from the manufacturer.
