Around the World in Trams: Berlin 1587

This article carries on our look at the trams of the world’s third largest tram network in Berlin.

On 3rd February 2017 we see a tram which started off life in 2015 as an Adtranz GT6N (numbered 1087) but was modernised to become a GT6U in 2015 when it received its current number of 1587. It is on route 61 and has terminated at Rahnsdorf/Waldschanke in the eastern outskirts of Berlin and is shortly to take a loop through woodland to head back to Adlershof/Karl-Ziegler-Strasse in the south east of the city. This is one of several inter-suburban routes that pass through the picturesque town of Kopenick.
