Tatra - Monday in Berlin
Author: boiler77

Good afternonn friends,

was chasing some of the last regular Tatra operation in Berlin, Germany. It will be ended this year. The # 37 line between Lichtenberg and Schöneweide is one of three with these cars.
# 1 - turning right at Rhin St and Kosmonauten Pkwy
# 2 - racing with up to 40 mph alongside the Elisath Hospital in Herzberge
# 3 - in the middle of Herzberg st
Nice evening for all.

Phil from Berlin, Germany

Nice pictures Phil, when do you expect the Tatras to be withdrawn?

The management of the transit authority advise it for the end of 2017. The  lines # 37, 67 ran on weekdays full Tatra service and several set ran on the M 17 also on weekdays only.
They want hold some trainset ready for operation in the next years, but not in daily schedule service.

D'oh! I didn't know any Tatra cars still existed in Germany. I really like Picture 3.

Huhm, I have enough points fo fly over there, just no time away from work available. I wonder if not wanting to miss seeing Tatra's in Berlin could warrant a couple weeks of stress leave?

I am sure that the combination of a few tough customers at work, plus the appalling stress of Tatra deprivation, would justify leave (it certainly does in my book, and I would sign you off at the drop of a hat!). I hope you make it - after all, what is life for?

Yes, make it!! Make it in most city's on weekdays. Tatra operation cannot found in Berlin only. Look for Leipzig and several small citys like Potsdam and Cottbus.

Can we North Americans get some background info on these cars?

Tatra trams were built by Czech builder CKD, they are still quite numerous in various cities of Central and Eastern Europe but are gradually being replaced by modern, rather characterless designs from Skoda, Bombardier, CAF and Alstom

I posted this about the trams in the Czech Republic's second city, Brno in 2015, most of which are Tatras
