    Trams in Prague

    February 1, 2020


    Tatra T3R.P double-set in Újezd A Ringhoffer motorcar from 1930 and a trailer from 1920 (also a Ringhoffer), on the museum line 41, near Národní divadlo. One of the most interesting “tram spots” in the city is this interwoven section near Malostranské náměstí, where trams traverse between and under houses. The train consists of a low-floor mid-section T3R.PLF and a normal (high-floor) T3R.P. And that’s a Škoda 15T from 2015. 15T meeting at Národní divadlo (National Theater). These sport the new livery, with white instead of silver under the window … … but the yellow nose is a more distinctive feature of them 🙂 Another “yellow-nose”, this time in Vodičkova. Once again a T3R.PLF + T3R.P train, at Újezd. And this is a 1915 Ringhoffer motor car. Here’s another T3R.PLF + T3R.P assembly. And now a pure T3R.P + T3R.P assembly! The End 🙂

And I will try this in Istanbul. One minute and one second. I can’t catch the tube in a minute and a second. There is just no way. Our train is much more faster than the other train in that “Race the subway” challange video. So, it will be more hard to do. I’m starting right now! I will wait a bit front of the door and will start after the door is closed. Yeah come on. I’ll wait a little bit in front of the door. I’ll get out when the door is closed. I won’t get out as soon as it opens. I will let other people go first. Come on, I’m going. I’m standing here. Run Run! Is he coming? This was much difficult than I expected. Oh, I feel dizzy. That was so fun. I never thought I could catch the train! Yes, here we come to the end of this video.

    The Bombay Tramway Company Limited was formally set up in 1873. We can say it provides a systematic gateway to transportation in Mumbai city. . The Government of Mumbai enacted the Bombay Tramways Act, 1874, under which the Company was licenced to run a tramway service in the city. The tram-cars were drawn by horses in these days. In 1905, it became The Bombay Electric Supply & Tramways Company Limited. As regards The supply of electrical energy started by erecting its own generating station with a total capacity of 4,300 KW. Soon the Company operated Electricity powered tram-car in Mumbai’s roads in 1907.
