More Cobra trams to be ordered?

filed on: 08.01.2007 (8th Jan 2007)

cobra tram Glattalbahn VBZ and VBG are set to order further Cobra trams. The initial order (for 74 vehicles) included an option for 35 further trams. This option must be exercised by October 2007. The initial order did not take Glattalbahn or Tram Züri West into account as the realisation schedules of these projects were still uncertain at the time. 10 to 20 additional trams are needed. The exact number depends on the number of spare vehicles that will be held and maintenance intervals.

On a related matter, differences of opinion over liveries have arisen between VBZ and VBG. VBZ would like to see the trams used on Glattalbahn painted in the same colours as its city trams. VBG, however, wishes to enforce its own corporate identity.
