Special liveries get rarer

filed on: 17.02.2009 (17th Feb 2009)

Ewigi Liebi tram 2005 Last year must have been a record year in terms of special liveries, with VBZ using the Euro 2008 championship to break ist usual rule restricting special liveries to three sets — and applying football liveries to five tram sets and two trolleybuses. Four further unconnected advertising liveries also operated during 2008 (not all simultaneously). With the university Cobra (3027) having lost its livery in late January, 2005 (Ewigi Liebi) is the only special livery tram to remain operational.
