Kurbeli 1379 leaves Zürich
filed on: 14.08.2013 (14th Aug 2013)
According to bahnhofplatz.net, Kurbeli 1379 and trailer 737 – returned to Zürich from AMTUIR earlier this year – have left for storage at a location in Solothurn on 18th June. Also moved to the same location was crane car 1953 (built 1963, rebuilt 1979). A view of the Swiss Standard Tram set during its brief stay in Zürich can be seen on Flickr, here.
The future of these vehicles remains undecided. What a pity that the opportunity was missed to generate more interest and ultimately support during the cars' stay in Zürich, for example by displaying the set alongside 1392 + 732 at the museum in Burgwies and generating more publicity by informing the media or spreading the word on social media. This landmark opportunity has passed practically unnoticed.
The former Polybahn car, which previously stood on the forecourt of Wartau depot has also left Zürich, although it is not clear whether it has gone to the same destination.
