Can you explain why this tram has its "doors" on the left-hand side!?
Another question: Why do some trams have "rain-wipers" mounted on the rear-windshield!?
This tram has doors on the left-hand side because it's made in Germany and a lot of Budapest's tramline haven't got rail loop.
The trams have got rain-wipers on the rear-windshield, because the trams have got 2 driving compartment.
The tram in Szeged has got rain-wipers on the rear-windshield because some place must reverse.
If a lot of Budapest's tramlines haven't got rail loops then the station-platforms should, at least where those interfere with other "looped-lines", be both-sided, shouldn't they!?
All that means that I should be more perceptive next time in BP! Thanks.
These are 2 hungarian pages: www.hampage.hu/kozlekedes and www.villamosok.hu. These pages have got hungarian and english text.
Thanks for suggesting me, among others, this "guide" too!
By the way, you could/should "tag" all your your tram-photos with the tag "trams" to share them with us "directly"! Quite an interesting collection already there!
If you change (rename???) the existing tag "villamos trams" to only "trams" you'll be visible to the wider "public"!
I'm hungarian and I recpect our language :).
I'm deeply sorry to make you angry and annoyed with "insisting" on the "Tag". My point had nothing with (or God forgive - against) your language, but was strictly pragmatic and friendly!
You do deserve to be shown "there"!
(I think I'll now remember the word "villamos" forever!)
Thanks your help, the new tags are visible to the vider public. :)
Can you help me to "locate" a kind of "Children's railway" that is, according to some hints and resources, still operational in the western part of Budapest!?
Once upon the time we had something similar!
The childen's rail is i the west-part of Budapest in the 12th district. You can go there the tramline 56 to Hűvösvölgy, the north terminus of the children's rail.
Yes, thanks - by using "Hűvösvölgy" in Google Search Engine, a few very interesting links emerged*! Seeing what's this all about, I reckon I'll try to catch at least "one ride" the next time in BP!
Budapest is the nicest from April to July. If you'll come, you see the Parlament, Budacastle and tramlines: 50, 52, 41, 56, 12, 14. These are the nicest tramlines in Budapest. In Hungary 4 cities have got tramlines: Budapest, Debrecen (1 line), Miskolc (2 lines) and Szeged (4 lines and the best in Hungary). Cheers!
Much obliged! I'll surely use some of your suggestions and links in preparation for the visit.
And, by the way, I've found only the traces in Pecs... Pity!
Pécs had tram system, but in 1960 closed. In the 2nd part of the 20. century a lot of tramlines closed. In Szombathely in 1974.08.20., in Nyíregyháza in 1970, In Sopron in 1923. In Budapest closed lines: old 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22, 23, 25, 26, 29, 31, 33, 36, 38, 40, 43, 44, 45, 48, 51, 53, 54, 55, 58, 60, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 69. These a lot of lines!
It's sad :(
Well - well!!! Does that mean they were later substituted by trolley-buses (on which I came across somewhere around Technical Museum and took an almost midnight ride...) or it was just left as such!?
That's the trolleybus line: 70 or 72 or 74. Here was the tramline 25 to 1972. Can I ask you: How old are you and where do you write?
Thank you, and you want more pictures about Hungarian transportation you'll write: firstname.lastname@example.org
