We stay in Amsterdam for this latest edition of “Around the World in Trams”.
Taken during April 1983 this photo was taken at Centraal Station and shows 896 and trailer running a service on line 4. Originally built in 1949 (when numbered 496) the 3 axle motor car was renumbered to 896 in 1968 and would be withdrawn in the very month that this photo was taken. After withdrawal the tram made its way to a former shipyard where it was converted into use as an artists studio. Sadly while there it was destroyed by fire in 2017.
