Wiener Strassenbahn

During my visit there some time back, I felt that Vienna has an extensive and truly world class public transportation system. There are S-bahn, U-bahn, tram and bus networks and the frequency is very good at any time of the day. When it comes to trams (or strassenbahn), Vienna has a fairly unbeatable system. It has been able to hold its own despite the expansion of the later U-bahns. Its fleet has modern tramcars with ultra low floor, futuristic looking vehicles as well as refurbished cars (as seen in the above picture) that serve as a reminder of the past. This particular tram was heading to the depot for a brief respite before embarking again.

I don't remember taking any public transportation in Vienna...
But I recall walking a lot there.

My hotel was quite central.

great and warm lighting
Ayush Basu: I felt a bit warmer shades would go well with the predominant wood
This looks so old and interesting Ayush, I know I would enjoy a ride in this.
Ayush Basu: You would, Brian. This particular tram runs through the city centre and the views outside were quite pleasant
You can see how well they have refurbished this car, Ayush, and kept it looking very authentic, also. Very nice capture; lots of warm tones.
Ayush Basu: I agree, they did an excellent job on this tram.

There's something so wonderful about the old-timey things making a come-back, Ayush. Makes me feel that being 'old' is something to cherish. grin
Great style to these old time carriages, well captured shot.
