“Won’t Get Fooled Again”
Author: africansteam

If you are ever shooting trams in Bergen, Norway, be sure your subject has a bow collector. This will insure that you are taking a photo of a tram and not one of the look alike multiple section busses masquerading as a tram while driving on the rails in the street! ; > )

 Sublect title borrowed from The Who.

Cheers,

So how would you classify TransLohr vehicles -- pantograph to run electric motors but run on rubber tires not rails.

A two rail trolley bus, designed to confuse me even more! ;>)

I have never seen a bus and a trolley look so much like each other. Were they both a product of the same manufacturer?
I can't see any overhead connecction on the bus, and the front wheels are not on the track. I doubt it was trying to
impersonate a trolley, just coincidental that it's running on a street that also has trolley tracks. Notice that the
trolley has no license plate while the bus does. Thanks for posting this rather unusual situation.
