    Yes it is very sad to think of the tram networks we had in the UK that are now gone, of course a lot of cities are putting them back in at a great cost but it will never be the same.

    I am fascinated by the tram network in Praque(Czech Republic) though never been but it is also on the to do list, here is a link to a live feed from the lubrication Tram-
    https://www.mall.tv/vlaky-a-tramvaje...a-jizda-prahou

    “ It is unique in Czech. Lubrication tram, officially named Tatra T3 with registration number 5572, nicknamed Mazačka by the inhabitants of Prague. On its way around the capital, its task is to lubricate the tracks to reduce noise and wear on the rails and tram wheels of other cars. During his never-ending work, he travels an average of over 200 kilometers a day. It is thus by far the busiest car not only in the fleet of Prague's special trams. You can meet it regularly on the streets since January 2015. However, the history of this tram is much longer.”

    If you want a scary tram system, find the YT video for the Kharkiv (Ukraine) system.

    The track is in a state of collapse and the trams run with a massive coupling arm projecting out the front. If that doesn't get you, there's no lifeguard tray or deflector to stop you going under the wheels.

    Bit of a drama queen.

    That protruding coupling is for ramming Russian tanks.

    Blimey, surely it will get to the stage where they have to stop running. It’s a shame it’s not being invested in.

    Union action regarding safe-work compliance would have shut that system down years ago if it were here.
