cobras at bahnhof oerlikon
13h December 2013, A pair of Cobras meet at Bahnhof Oerlikon. This track layout will soon be rebuilt as double track, meaning eastbound trams no longer need to wind their way through Nansenstrasse, but it will also mean that views of two trams facing in the same direction and standing side by side will soon be history in this location. The VBG unit on the right is in the revised VBG livery with more generous use of white on the front end, applied following a spate of accidents on the airport line.

forchbahn
Autumn 2003, classic Forchbahn bogie car 10 close to Neuhaus. Although this was a special working, the vehicle could at the time occasionally still be seen in regular service. It is now the subject of a preservation attempt by VHF (link to external website). The vehicle was ordered by Forchbahn 1940, but due to wartime material shortyges it was not delivered until 1944. Together with its sister vehicle, number 9 (now a works car), it heralded the beginning of the transformation of this railway from an antiquated interurban tramway to a modern suburban light railway.

zürich as it might have been: lindenplatz u-bahn stop
In the early 1970s, Zürich was planning an underground ( U-Bahn ). The plans were rejected in a referendum in 1973. This artist's impression shows how Lindenplatz stop might have looked. Some sections on which work had already commenced were put to other uses, including a tram subway. For more information on this, visit this page: From U-Bahn to tram tunnel . The illustrated stop would have been built by cut-and-cover. Compare this to the deep-level-bore station that was planned at Schaffhauserplatz ..

zürich as it might have been: schaffhauserplatz u-bahn stop
In the early 1970s, Zürich was planning an underground ( U-Bahn ). The plans were rejected in a referendum in 1973. This artist's impression shows how Schaffhauserplatz stop might have looked. This station would have been built in a single deep-level bore with platforms on two different levels. Compare this to the cut-and-cover station that was planned at Lindenplatz .

tierspital subway stop: zürich
tierspital stop on the milchbuck to schwamendingerplatz subway. this tunnel was built for zürich's planned u-bahn . this project was, however, discarded in a referendum in 1973. the subway finally found a new use when a tram line was opened through it in 1986. to compare this picture to how the u-bahn could have looked, visit this page: from u-bahn to tram tunnel .


25th october 2001. tram 2000 car 2113 has been fitted with a low floor section. the section was built in the vbz's own workshops using mainly tram 2000 parts. here the lengthened car stands at oerlikon station on it's first day in service. 2113 ran on route 10 on this and the following day before being transferred to route 6. note the non-standard paint scheme around the articulations (on single-articulated tram 2000 cars, the blue band is broader).

industrial railway tracks in zürich oerlikon
16 september 2013, roadworks on elias-canetti-strasse in zürich oerlikon revealed these narrow gauge tracks. i don't know anything about the history of these tracks. the rail is of extremely light grade and so possibly used for hand-pushed trolleys. this area was part of the mfo factory site, which was until not very long ago criss-crossed by a veritable labyrinth of industrial sidings, the remnants of one of which is still visible in this same street. these tracks are definitely too light to be standard gauge however, so must have been part of a different system. this picture is part of a series of four .
