Travels 2021 – Part I

Covid is still with us so there have been almost no trips this year. The closure (for regauging) of the scenic interurban between Liberec and Jablonec (CZ) in July allowed a long weekend and also was the testing ground for my new camera (the old one broke down early last year but I still managed 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).

"Helmuts" in Lodz (Update 2019)

Modernised Konstal 105Na trams at Tramwaje Śląskie

Working on the photos I took during a recent visit to Katowice (and much of the rest of the network) I noticed that it is difficult to find a list of all the modernised cars currently operating there. So I made my own (originally to appear in the German language Blickpunkt Straßenbahn magazine – but Read More
