Technical Equipment #Z-1

20 march 2010 - Lisboa, Santo Amaro: There appear to be only two or three works trams remaining from the batch of ten once supplied to Lisboa. Although I`m not an expert, they seem to have Brill 21E underframes and Dick, Kerr DB1 controllers, which suggests to me that they arrived here very early in the 1900s? Anyway, they are mostly replaced by motor trucks these days. This particular one is a box van and is still seen occasionally on the network at night.

Brill Carris #283

20 march 2010 - Lisboa, Cais do Sodre: The impressive `toastrack` tram, now the last one remaining in Lisboa, on a rare trip outside its normal home in the Carris museum. These summer trams were built by Brill of Philadelphia, USA and shipped to Portugal in 1901. This tram had a very lucky escape - withdrawn from service in the early 1950s, it spent almost the next twenty years as a plaything in a city park until rescued for preservation in 1981. It is only used on sunny days (probably not because of the risk of rain damage, but because the drivers don`t like getting wet....)

Remodelado #572

14 march 2010 - Lisboa, Calcada de Sao Francisco: This is Lisboa tram #572 - honest! One of several places on the amazing Carris network where you wonder just how the tram stays on the track, particularly on this corner, where you can watch one wheel actually leave the rails as it turns. These rebuilt, traditional four-wheeled trams actually have very powerful motors and can sail up gradients such as this with ease.

Remodelado #577

22 march 2010 - Lisboa, Rua Vitor Cordon: **My 3000th TWB photo** This seemed like a good idea when I posted picture #1 in 2009! Anyway, although I don`t have much tech. nical skill, I have tried to inform with subjects I find interesting but not seen here before. This is mLisboa, of course - a tram fan`s paradise. It never ceases to amaze, how they get trams to climb these gradients safely.
