Around the World in Trams: Uetlibergbahn 2

We are again at the Lucerne Transport Museum for this edition of “Around the World in Trams”.

Is it a tram or a train? The Uetlibergbahn is a line which runs from central station in Zurich  through the western districts of the city to the summit of the Uetliberg and having opened in 1875 it was electrified in 1923. It was at this time that the vehicle we see in this image – no. 2 – was introduced into service. This was retained as a museum piece until 2008 but with additional services being run the chances of it being used were reduced and it was then loaned to the transport museum at Lucerne.
