A picture gallery of the last city trams in Stockholm.
The photograhs are mainly from the last summer in 1967, when we still had left hand traffic and the city trams still were running.
After the convertion to right hand traffic on the 3rd of September (logo to the left), the city system with 5 routes, approx 95 trams and 30 trailers, was withdrawn and most of the tram cars were scrapped. Some were preserved as vintage / museumtrams.
After the right hand convertion, only the suburb tramways of line 12 and the Lidingötram were running. As in many other cities, however the tram is coming back. During 1991 a tramway was opened in the city, line 7 between Norrmalmstorg and Djurgården, run by the Swedish Tramway Society. In January 2000 a new built tramway / light rail transit line was opened in the southern suburbs of Stockholm
