6001 to 6005 are now in service in Basel. There have been no recent withdrawals of older cars

There was a serious accident on October 19th when a lorry missed a turn it should have made and rammed 5019. 37 people were injured. 5019 will probably have to be sent to Bombardier Vienna for repairs.

A year after the accident 5019 is still out of service and has not been returned to Bombardier.

5034 was hit by a van in St Louis on 21 August and derailed. It is reported at least two sections of the tram will have to be replaced due to the extent of the damage

The damaged sections of 5034 are at Bombardier Vienna for repair. 5034 is expected to return to service in Autumn 2020. At least the front two sections of 5019 are write offs and will be replaced. 5019 is not expected to return to service until the end of 2020

In what accidents were these trams damaged?

Thanks,
