Zürich Tram line 2

Edited

Kappeli to Farbhof closed at end of traffic 12.07.2019 and will not see timetabled trams again until 02.09.

Farbhof loop and terminus will be demolished and replaced by a through stop.

The extension from Farbhof to Schlieren Geissweid will open to timetable traffic on 02.09.2019 but there will be an opportunity to travel during the opening festival on 31.08.2019 which will include the use of museum cars

You rightly say the section will not see timetabled trams. Of course there will still be tram movements as this line accesses the main workshops.

Kappeli is the stop just to the east of the access to the main workshops. As it doesn't have a turning loop, then I guess that the intention must be to terminate the service trams either by using the depot access as a Y, or by using a loop within the workshops themselves. If I'm right, then the section up to the workshop will see more trams than just those needing the services of the workshops.

Or I have I made an assumption too far.

Anyone wishing to travel on the extension should note that after the Micafil stop the line is outside central zone 110 and a ticket valid in zone 154 will be required
