Wear and tear on the Cobras

filed on: 05.03.2007 (5th Mar 2007)

Cobra tram in snow, Thurgauerstrasse It seems that the teething troubles of the Cobras are not over. Yesterday's NZZ am Sonntag newspaper reports that these trams are receiving attention to their running gear every 100,000 to 150,000 km (circa 2 years), as opposed to about 360,000 km for older trams. Also, the wheels are being reprofiled every 50,000 km. With about a third of the 74 Cobras already delivered, a solution has not been found. A decision has yet to be taken on further vehicles for Glattalbahn and Tram Zürich West.
