Re: New Zurich trams finally ordered

4001 has started testing on the VBZ network. Driver training will start in April with a view to passenger service in the summer. Each new car will be used in service for 25 days on the 11 before moving to line 4.

It is hoped 9 or 10 cars will be in service by the end of the year when VBZ hope to have enough trams to reverse the service cuts made on 25.11
