Thank You!

I see, I not jet named this picture, (I do not know church name), but my second reason why I captured this - new style tram!

See also old style tram.

I made ride with this new style car. And funniest things inside was good sound isolation and folding - unfolding front side mirrors.

In the moment, we see in this pict - mirrors are folded along a tram to make safe bypass with oncoming trams. When tram approaches stops and open doors, mirrors automatically unfold, to get available passengers good observation for tram driver.

Worst side with trams in Brussel is - they accept only small change coins to pay for ride tickets. No paper money exchanges. :(

The front of this one looks very streamlined! It seems, this is coming out of the church...

Ainars, while writing this, I remember a very old one I have...

Cheers, Roland
