More Cobra problems

filed on: 28.06.2009 (28th Jun 2009)

It is reported on bahnhofplatz.net (citing Tages Anzeiger as source) that in the night of 24th to 25th June, as a Cobra tram was returning to Irchel depot, the suspension on one of the wheels on the middle section broke, leading to a "partial derailment". VBZ are now inspecting the entire Cobra fleet for damage. Analysis of the dismantled prototypes 3001-6 had revealed structural cracks in this region and some of the series units had been appropriately strengthened, not however this ill-fated tram. No passengers were on board when the incident occurred. The tram is still under guarantee so VBZ will incur no costs.
