bus announcing glattalbahn
23rd january 2007, a vbg citaro bus advertising the glattalbahn. note how the glattalbahn system map takes the place of the mercedes logo. i wonder why the destination must read zürich flughafen. how many people expect bus 768 to take them to basel or frankfurt airport?

tierspital subway stop: zürich

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
