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.
