News update

filed on: 16.04.2008 (16th Apr 2008)

According to the NZZ newsppaer of 11th April, construction of Tram Zürich West is set to begin on 9th September.

A correspondent has emailed me pointing out a tram accident I missed. On the early morning of April 4th, 2014 (ex-depot for route 15) ran into the back of 1643 (on route 13) at Dammweg. The Mirage is almost certainly a write-off, having suffered significant deformation.

trolleybus 9 The following GTZ trolleybuses have been withdrawn: 21/6 (im March) and 7/16/27/31 (in April). The lowest-numbered trolleybus remaining is number 9.

The fifth Euro-2008 tram, 1689, is still running in white. It is speculated that the sponsor for its intended special livery has withdrawn.

The use of dynamic displays rather than fixed roofboards to indicate a tram's route are bearing first fruits, with Cobras from other routes helping out off-peak on route 2.
