E-tram in service
filed on: 13.02.2006 (13th Feb 2006)
Last Thursday (8th), I visited Letzigrund for a closer look at E-tram. The vehicles used are the same as for Cargotram (Xe 4/4 1922, X2 1984 and X2 1987). The X2s carry different container bodies, presumably more suited for carrying crates and palettes (E-tram staff sort objects into different bins as they are received, whereas in Cargotram they are stowed for later processing). This would imply that the container bodies are changed two to three times a week. Some photographic impressions of Thursday night can be seen here.
