Lisbon Tramways in 2000


a collection of photographs from the Tramway - Streetcar System in Lisbon, from March 2000.
A very charming system. Old trolleys in regular traffic, combined with modern low-floor articulated ones. Five lines remaining, although the system have been reduced through the last couple of years. In some parts of the city narrow streets, combined with hills, makes it to a rather unique system. The older trams being restored, but care taken to preserve the characteristics of the trams. Since -95 Siemens bi-articulated, 3-bodies articulated trams in traffic, 24 meter long, 210 pass capacity, on route 15. Narrow gauge, 900 mm.
each photograph is approx 50 - 70 Kb
