Travels 2015 – Part I (Denmark, Germany, Northern Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Turkey)

Another very busy year for traveling. We visited a few museums and took some photos around Hamburg. Northern Poland was a group visit (with Central and southern Poland to follow 2016 and 2017) I organised. We travelled by coach. Hungary was easily done by train – again a group tour (which I had partly organised). Read More

Istanbul impressions

A short trip to Istanbul allowed me to ride all of the lines (tram, metro, tünel, metrobüs, ferries, Marmaray etc.). Photography is difficult as it is not allowed in the stations and there is a lot of security. I had no problems away from the stops but some of the lines offer very few photo Read More

Warsaw Work Horses – Part I (Motor Cars)

This posting is from 2011 but it was recently updated: In late May 2011 I lead a party of 45 tram enthusiasts for in Poland. We visited the tram systems in Warsaw, Czestochowa and Lodz. We also saw the metro depot in Warsaw and rode and visited the WKD interurban from Warsaw to Grodzisk (Mazowie.pdfcki). Here I Read More

Most photos were taken inside the huge ZETiT complex (i.e. the permanent way and workscar depot in Obozowa) – those taken at other locations are marked. Many more vehicles were seen and many of Read More

Warsaw Work Horses – Part II (Trailers & Traversers)

Apart from the motor car fleet of work cars there are also numerous trailers. Many of the trucks used are probbly from old passengers trams. As in part I we show all the vehicles we saw during our one day visit to all depots and workshops. I did miss the snow ploughs this time, they Read More

Warsaw Work Horses – Part IV (Previous Visits)

The last part of our Warsaw report deals with vehicles not observed during our May 2011 visit. The photos shown were all taken on previous visits and it is not known if these vehicles still exist (though in the case of the accident damaged “K” cars they are probably scrapped…). We show them in the Read More

Travels 2011 – Kolkata Part III

Last day (Day 5): those fires again (amazing how quite the streets still are at 7:30am – if only I had forced myself to get up this early every day… on the next visit for sure) #634 in Lenin Sarani (route 22) #270 in Lenin Sarani (route 25) #270 (we arrived in this car here) Read More
