alicante benalua station
5th January 2014. The Benalua station in Alicante (Estación de Benalúa) was once the terminus of the line going South to Murcia and beyond into Andalucia (an alternative name for the station is Estación de Murcia). Not only was this system practically robbed of its trunk-line status through the closure of the Almendricos - Guadix section (effectively severing the Mediterranean corridor South of Lorca), but it lost its terminus in Alicante when passenger services were transferred to the former MZA Termino station nearby. Following closure of the passenger service, Benalua continued to serve as a goods station, serving the adjoining port. Today very few - if any - goods trains still come here. Having slumbered in disuse for many years, the station building is now being converted into "Casa del Mediteranneo"

inscription on casting of peckham number 8 truck
2nd April 2011, Detail of Zürich 93. The car is only temporarily supported on the truck, hence the wooden block instead of the leaf spring. See also this news item . I believe the full text (partly obliterated by the subsequent welding on of an additional flange and widening of the axle box to permit more powerful motors to be added) reads "PECKHAMS FLEXIBLE GEAR MANUFACTURED BY PECKHAM MOTORTRUCK & WHEEL CO 8 KINGSTON N Y PATENTED AUG 30 1892". The 8 refers to this being a number 8 type truck according to the manufacturer's catalogue. Also visible is the company's monogram PTC. Edgar Peckham devised an ingenious modular system permitting trucks of different dimensions to be assembled from standard parts. A more complete text is legible on this specimen . One of the later units manufactured under licence in Switzerland by SWS (Schlieren) can be seen here .

gtz trolleybus number 1
1995, Mercedes/ABB O405 GTZ trolleybus number 1 (former prototype) of 1986 approaches Kirche Fluntern on route 33. This was the only GTZ to have three doors rather than four. It was also the only GTZ to gave carried this livery variation with more generous use of blue. The livery lasted until 1999. The bus was unpopular with staff as the missing rear door supposedly lead to longer loading times and made time keeping difficult. It was hence frequently used for driver training. This became official in 2007 when the bus could be declared surplus to the requirements of the regular fleet and was renumbered 4122 in the training fleet. This status was short lived however, as the bus suffered a transmission failure later that year and was scrapped for spares .

forch hell
14th december 2006, the red signs "forch hell" travel further north than ever before. this was possibly the first day since the opening of the auzelg extension (on 10th december) that these signs were displayed on route 11, so making them visible in places where they were hitherto unseen. the use of such signs goes back a long way and is still an important and sympathetic way of encouraging people to leave the overcast winter down and ride by tram to an area which is basking in the sun — not fuertaventura or the phillipines, but the forch area just aside zürich. similar signs (uetlibgerg hell) are carried on routes 13 and 14 when similar weather treats zürich's uetliberg mountain. this view shows the stop messe/hallenstadion, until recently the terminus of route 11. part of the old turning circle can be seen on the left. this feature is being retained to serve major events in the messe (exhibition centre) and hallenstadion (the indoor stadium, the building in the background). zoom in

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 ..

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 .

zürich cargotram
cargotram at wollishofen on it's first day in service (15th april 2003). this view of trailer 1984 clearly shows its peckham truck. this truck is now serving it's third purpose. in contrast to the later peckham trucks which were built under licence in switzerland, the original batch were imported from the usa. these were used for cars 57 - 84. these cars originally had open balconies which were later glazed. their low power and limited capacity led to their conversion to trailers 473-500 between 1926 and 1929. new lighter trucks were constructed for these trailers and the original trucks were reutilised for works cars of various types and descriptions. a small number of these survive today, among them crane car 1952 . trailers 1984 and 1987 survived as permanent way wagons but saw little use during their final years. their next rebuild was in 2003 when they were prepared to carry standard refuse containers.

zürich var picdescr="w&l&jpg&0?http://www.datacomm.ch/shadowfax/tram/photo/zurich/milchbuck1_c.html?" zürich. 15th december 2001. zürich certainly has no shortage of complex junctions, yet no other is in such an almost woodland setting, and no other is so lavishly laid out as to allow trams to be photographed at different levels. the location is milchbuck, a busy tram, trolleybus and bus interchange adjoining irchel park. to the left a mirage set on route 7 emerges from the schwamendingen tram subway, while the tram 2000 set on the right is heading for the same subway. due to the central platforms in the tunnel, trams have to run on the left, and the lines are crossed over at this junction, explaining the need for the outbound line to rise over the inbound line before the former can enter the tunnel. the tram 2000 set in the background is waiting to leave the turning circle on a short working of route 9. the tracks used by routes 10 and 14 to oerlikon continue to it's left. the snow had fallen two days earlier and was to last well into the new year. if picture failed to load, click here photo by a. moglestue . last updated 15.01.02 counter added 15.01.02
