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 .

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"

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.
