Bern: Compressed air tram project stopped
filed on: 02.02.2012 (2nd Feb 2012)
The Berner Tramway Gesellschaft, who also operate Bern's steam tram, have been working on a replica compressed air tram. Such trams operated in Bern from 1890 to 1902. With the support of apprentices, work had begun on both the wooden body and on the compressed-air engine. Sadly, all work has now ceased, apparently due to the transport ministry tightening its regulations. It is not yet clear what will happen to the partially completed unit.
