Travels 2011-2013 are offline for now because we need to upload all the pics again. That will take some time. On our Read More

Travels 2011 – Kolkata (Fleet Overview)

Updated DEC 2020 with the help of the excellent fleet list supplied by Sagnik Gupta (Thank you!) This my attempt to compile a fleet list of the CTC. Various sources have been used. My trip to Kolkata in February 2011 has allowed me to make personal oberservations (we visited all depots and I took photos Read More

Travels 2011 Kolkata (Report)

Note: this post was first uploaded in 2011 – we have updated it at the end of 2020… (follow the link at the bottom to go to the photo sections) – a very nice e-magazine was published in early 2021 dealing with all aspects of the Kolkata tramway: http://www.traintrackers.com/railcanvaz/railcanvaz3.html Another year, another exotic location, another travel report: I’ve Read More

Travels 2020 – Part III

A long weekend in Lodz (PL) to ride museum GT6 #805 and a visit to the rebuilt tramway in Gorzow (PL). In Lodz we visited Rzgow to see the newly installed Konstal #3459 and a visit to ZTiS (the permanent way depot) allowed an inspection of the new workscar #92338. The main workshops at Tramwajowa Read More

Travels 2020 – Part I

A weekend in Liberec (CZ) with a very short drive-by of Goerlitz (DE) took place in January. Covid-19 made all the other planned travels impossible but in August the tramway museum at Schoenberger Strand (DE) near Kiel was visited. New year, new photo layout – click any of the preview images to go to  full Read More

Travels 2020 – Part II

Despite Covid-19 a train trip to Sweden was arranged in September. Goeteborg (SE) was the main target but the train allowed convenient stops in Landskrona (SE) and Lund (SE) to see the single trolleybus and new tramway lines there. We saw 4 of the 5 trolleybuses in Landskrona. Lund is to open in December 2020 Read More

Travels 2019 – Part XV

Two trolleybus systems all the way in the west of the country remained on our list. A very long drive via Pinsk (just buses there) toko us first to Brest. We did this and Hrdona on a weekend so we had not arranged depot visits or charters (maybe we should have – but then another Read More

Travels 2019 – Part XIV

The other single tram line in the country. Like Navapolatsk this serves a giant plant at the end of the line (miles out in the country – over 20km). Only a small part of the town is served by the tram (mostly high rise housing for the plant workers). We had communicated with the company Read More

Travels 2019 – Part XIII

Three trolleybus systems. Due to our full schedule we could only visit the tram depot in Mahilioŭ (with a brief stop at the railway station to see the two new battery buses). We next made a brief stop in Babruysk and then spent a little more time in Homiel (unfortunately, they had refused to let Read More

Travels 2019 – Part XII

We visited all tram and trolleybus systems in Belarus and Vitebsk is the one we liked the most. A fairly large network (both tram and trolleybus) with some scenic areas (as well as the usual high rise estates). We chartered the old RWZ-6 tram and visited both the tram and the trolleybus depot. A repeat Read More
