Around the World in Trams: Frieburg-im-Bresgau 279

Germany is once again the location for this edition of Around the World in Trams with the system in Frieburg-im-Bresgau the focus of our attention.

The first lines in Frieburg-im-Bresgau opened in 1901 and the network is metre gauge. Part of the German tramway renaissance since 1980 there has been a expansion of the network with just over 20 route miles (32.3km). The system has a number of different classes of tram in regular use all dating from 1981 and later.

In this view we see 279 which is one of a batch built by Duewag in 1999 and 2000. It is at the Hauptbahnhof (main railway station) which is located on a bridge across the railway line. Working a route 1 service to Landwasser this photo was taken on 25th September 2001.

    Correction: It’s spelt Freiburg, not Frieburg (or Freiberg!!!)
