Cobras to come by rail
filed on: 24.03.2006 (24th Mar 2006)
Until now, all Cobra deliveries have come by lorry (3001-6 from Pratteln and 3007 from Villeneuve). This is set to change, with rail being used in future. The reason stated being that delivery by road is not reliable in snowy conditions.
Website comment: The decision to deliver these trams by road led to severe criticism in railway circles at the time. The justification used was that technical problems (not further expounded) prevented such transport.
