MAIN STORY

Helsinki gives away old trams



The Finnish city of Helsinki is giving away some of its old trams. A notice published by the city's transport authority in mid-June says that they have a number of antique trams that are not quite fit for museums, but they would rather not send them to the scrap yard. Instead, they are offering the trams for free to collectors, on the condition that they are conserved and not turned into summer cottages or storage facilities. Prospective owners of the trams must not take the retired vehicles out of the country. Of the trams on offer, one is older than the nation of Finland itself, and was made in 1910-1918. Another was made in 1958 and can carry 111 passengers. Five years ago, the city of Helsinki put into operation first For City Smart Arctic trams manufactured by Transtech Oy, a subsidiary of Škoda Transportation. The city has ordered 99 Škoda trams worth almost CZK 8 billion.
