Helsinki

Hello,

I realize this is slightly off topic but does involve a rail station.

Does the tram line in Helsinki which connects the railroad station to the West Port operate 24 hours daily? With the time difference between there and the US I've seen trams operating after 2 AM Helsinki time and as early as 5 AM, again Helsinki time.

I find viewing the harbor operation very interesting as the passenger vessels come and go.

Thanks.

DaleR

Not sure, but, for the record, here are the tram lines on open railway map.

A circle trip to consider is one I did from Stockholm using the Viking Line's overnight ferries from Stockholm to Turku, then by train to Helsinki to ride the trams there before returning to Stockholm on the ferry.
The link below shows an image of a tram at the station.

Trams start at about 05:00 and the last ones are just after 02:00, so almost 24 hours, but not quite.

Thanks for the answer. That clearly makes sense from and operating standpoint. I suppose it a ferry somehow got so late as to arrive beteen 2 and 5 AM there could.
be a "call out" of drivers if the wait would be extremely long.
