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

forchbahn
autumn 2003, classic forchbahn bogie car 10 close to neuhaus. although this was a special working, the vehicle could at the time occasionally still be seen in regular service. it is now the subject of a preservation attempt by vhf (link to external website). the vehicle was ordered by forchbahn 1940, but due to wartime material shortyges it was not delivered until 1944. together with its sister vehicle, number 9 (now a works car), it heralded the beginning of the transformation of this railway from an antiquated interurban tramway to a modern suburban light railway.

zürich as it might have been: lindenplatz u-bahn stop
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 lindenplatz stop might have looked. 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 ..

25th october 2001. tram 2000 car 2113 has been fitted with a low floor section. the section was built in the vbz's own workshops using mainly tram 2000 parts. here the lengthened car stands at oerlikon station on it's first day in service. 2113 ran on route 10 on this and the following day before being transferred to route 6. note the non-standard paint scheme around the articulations (on single-articulated tram 2000 cars, the blue band is broader).

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
