How many of us has at one point posted the 'faces' of trams, trains and buses in DP? Well. today I'm posting the back of a tram instead of the face =D (notice my shadow there lol)

This tram (Straßenbahn), is the new and lowered version, I say lowered because like the trains from two days ago, there are still trams with steps (elevated from platform) like the one below. This is not very convenient for the older people or the physically challenged or for a mom like me hehe.

  2. The new lower tram looks real sleek and must give a great ride. Being so low, I wonder how they are in the snow.

  4. In summer, I wish those glass windows could be opened, but no they can't be...it gets warm inside for lack of ventilation.

    The snow get plowed very often so there isnt really problems with them when they pile up.

  7. Nice looking new tram! But the old one was very picturesque, too ... just not so modern. I'm struck by how clean everything looks!!

  8. I am amazed too Chuck, there are daily cleaners that comes by often, they are really loyal to their job I guess...but I sometimes see not so clean stuff too, and I think the younger people are to be blamed :-(
