Mirages to leave Zürich
filed on: 14.02.2011 (14th Feb 2011)
Reliability of the Cobra trams and satisfaction with Sänfte+Pony pairs (concerns that the length of the latter would lead to congestion at Bahnhofplatz proved unfounded) mean that the stored Mirage units are now definitely surplus. 10 of these will be shipped to Vinnitsa this year, with the remaining two being earmarked for the tram museum.
Not included among the 12 Mirage survivors is 1626. This tram has been an exhibition tram since January 2010 and stood on a comleted section of track of Tram Zürich West. It has now apparently been moved to the turning loop at Bahnhof Altstetten Nord (also part of Tram Zürich West).
