Updating this website's previous report on the numbering of ex-Zürich trams in Vinnitsa, the following identities are confirmed: 229 is ex VBZ 1418 and 236 is ex VBZ 783. 1420 and 774 are being cannibalised for spares. The Mirage Be4/6 trams are being allocated odd numbers in the range 255 to 283. Confirmed so far are:
Vinnitsa number: Zürich number
The even numbers in the range 256 to 284 are (or will be) "B4 Mirages" (FFA 3-door trailers). The following are exceptions:
260, 262, 272: Be4/6 Mirage Kühe (cabless units) 1715, 1717, 1718 (sequence unconfirmed)
268 is described as "B4 Karpfen" and is probably ex VBZ 786.
