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

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 .

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
