Today our world tour is back on mainland Europe as we head to Germany and the city of Stuttgart.
The tram in today’s image is no. 460, a metre gauge Esslingen GT4 which was built in 1961 for use on the traditional Stuttgart tramway. This tramway has been modernised in recent years to offer a modern Stadtbahn system totalling over 81 route miles with the last replacements taking place in late 2007. But at the time of this photo – 1993 – 460 was still operating and is seen here on shuttle service E on temporary Gartenschau track.
