Basel: Tram museum has BVB's blessing
filed on: 10.07.2012 (10th Jul 2012)
In an unexpected change of mood, Basel's BVB has agreed to a tram museum in Dreispitz depot. About half of the depot will be set aside for the museum trams (presently 15 cars), with the other half being required by regular trams. These will, however, be out in service during opening hours of the museum, permitting the heritage cars to de distributed across the entire depot. The cantonal government is not interested in supporting the project financially. The museum's promotors do, however, believe they can realise the project through donations and sposnorship. The museum could open in three year's time.
