Brno, Czech Republic

From nycsubway.org

Overview

Brno is the second largest city of the Czech Republic, southeast of Prague about three hours by train. In Brno we chartered a tram built in 1947 although it looks much older (it's wooden-- post-wartime steel rations, I suppose). The crew was having a great time operating the car and showing us around their city. Brno has an extensive tram museum which is not connected to the tram system and due to time constraints, we didn't get to visit.

Regular equipment in Brno is the same as in all the other cities: various versions of Tatra trams from old T-2's, newer K6 articulated cars, rebuilt T-3's etc. We got a tour of the depot where we got to see plenty of variety in their service cars.
