Re: HTM GTL8 tram

Ah. They're finally out. I already did some test runs and they run really well. It also surprised me, how GTL sounds like when it's standing still with it's panto lifted up. It makes a steady high pitched beeping noise, which sounds exactly like a Tatra T6A5 when it's standing completely still. You...

Re: HTM GTL8 tram

Yup. BTW the 8000 series tram of Prague are called Tatra T3M. M stands for modified. These got thyristor drives in the late 70's/early 80's (TV1).

Hmm, T3? Eh? Reminds me of Route 15, a heritage tram in Philadelphia. Obviously PCC-IIs are on the line, but as of right now, SEPTA replaced them with Buses..
CKD Tatra T3. ;) It was based on the PCC, but for the eastern part of europe back before the 1990s.

Re: HTM GTL8 tram

Yeah yeah. This was already mentioned in the first post on this topic and Michiel also mentioned it in one post. I also hope, those museum trams will be operable so they can go out for a retro ride, if an opportunity shows up. I'm afraid that these trams will not be operational after they will go o...

Re: HTM GTL8 tram

I don't know about that yet. The 'old' front (still hiding under the new one, as seen here: https://haagsetrams.com/gtl/midlife-revisie-gtls-serie-3100/) definately looked a lot better. And I do not really plan to make every single variation of this tram (but at least the red-beige livery, the whit...

Re: HTM GTL8 tram

Your 1st guess is wrong, this tram only runs at 600V. 2nd guess is correct, the rear panto is used when the front panto is damaged or sometimes the drivers just use the rear one instead of the front one.

When the GTL 2nd generation were delivered they had the white-blue livery with yellow doors. Back in I believe 2002 they repainted them to look like the 1st generation. Click the link for the image.

Re: NS DDM1

I have discovered an error in the DDAR trains Cabin 1 is the balcony and Cabin 2 is the normal control table. So if you would like to watch it again, please do. Het is alleen het motor rijtuig. At least it shows the cabins and not the interior. Just because it's reversed it doesn't always mean that...
