Lisbon night tram

Europe, Portugal, Lisbon, Centre, Eléctrico, Driver, Passenger (cut from T)

 

Armchair travelling to delightful Lisbon. We were riding a Lisbon tram late in the evening here. The tram is of the 'remodelado' type. Most of them were built in 1936-1940 and modernized in the mid 90’s. They are powered by two Metrovick 45 hp traction engines and weigh 10 metric tons and can carry some 58 passengers (20 seated and 38 standing).

 

The most famous Eléctrico line is 28 which climbs & clatters its way up through Alfama and gives you a good, cheap and thrilling tour of the city.

 

A closer view of an eléctrico driver and his workspace is here.

 

This is number 177 of Lisboa & Ouitra banda and

29 of Eléctricos.
