More preserved trams hiding away

filed on: 26.11.2014 (26th Nov 2014)

The same issue of TMZ Revue (as above) also has an article on the various vehicles being stored off system in a disused factory in Zuchwil. These are Swiss Standard Tram 1379 and trailer 737 (repatriated from Paris), crane car 1953 and Polybahn car 2.

The future of the crane car is unclear. The article says it might one day find use on a heritage or narrow-gauge railway. The Polybahn car, dating to 1889, is Zürich's oldest surving public transport vehicle. A restoration as static exhibit has been considered but rejected for now due to the high costs involved.
