Restaurant tram in danger

filed on: 03.09.2015 (3rd Sep 2015)

zurich restaurant tram 1802 VBZ's restaurant tram 1802 (originally an articulated protype dating to 1960) has been out of service for some time now. According to sources on, the car is presently stored in Oerlikon depot together with open-topped trailer 1971 (a converted standard tram trailer).

zurich open trailer tram 1971 Plans to overhaul the pair are unlikely to be followed up on due to the high costs. Sadly, Tram Museum Zürich has also declined to express interest (although even as a statitc restaurant, this would be quite an attraction at the museum). It is feared this trams will be scrapped.
