German Trams 7 - Nuremburg and Munich (97-mins)

Ref: IT230D


Filmed in 2012, the historic city of Nürnberg (Nuremburg) has an impressive tram and U-Bahn system. For the purpose of this programme, we concentrate on the tramway. Built to the standard gauge of 1435mm the system covers 36.3km. Most of the system is street track with some reserved running areas. The current fleet is made up of low floor Adtranz/Siemens GT6N, Adtranz, Bombardier/Siemens GT8N2 and GTV6Variobahn Stadler cars.

Our filming starts at Neutor Graben. Then our cameras move along Westtorgraben, Spittlerorgraben to the busy tram station at Am Plärrer to record the action. We came across an ‘Old Timer’ M.A.N. bus doing some publicity work which adds to the interest here. The next location is outside the Hauptbahnhof where there is plenty of action to enjoy before we head back towards Neutor Graben. Most of the trams are seen in service in their smart red and white livery, some trams are in overall advertising schemes to add some extra colour – look out for the car advertising the tramway museum!

The next city to feature on our programme is München (Munich), the capital of Bavaria. This beautiful historic city, with its imposing buildings, fountains and excellent tramway is situated on the river Isar. The system is to the standard gauge of 1435mm and covers 71.2km. The current fleet is made up of GT6N MAN, AEG/Siemens, GT8N2 Adtranz, Bombardier/ Siemens and Variobahn Stadler. They are also still running a set of P3 Rathgeber, München AM4s, dating from 1967/8, which are seen on a number of occasions in this programme.

Our filming starts outside the Hauptbahnhof and then moves to the busy Karlsplatz and Sonnenstrasse. We continue along Maximilianstrasse and into the old town for some more action in the historic streets. All types of this smart fleet are captured for you to enjoy from the 1960’s P3 to the brand new Variobahns still being delivered. The evening rush is captured back on Karlsplatz and at the Hauptbahnhof, and to finish off our visit to München we do some night filming at Hauptbahnhof and Dachauer Strasse.

German Trams 8 - Augsburg, Ulm and Freiburg (94-mins)

Ref: IT231D


The historic Bavarian city of Augsburg is situated on the river Lech. The trams are the main feature of the attractive old town where the seven lines run in from the modern suburbs. Electric trams started back in 1898 and still run on metre gauge track. The fleet in 2012 is made up of 11 GT6M Astranz/Siemens, 41 Combino (Siemens) and 27 CityFlex (Bombardier) in an attractive olive green and off white livery. Some of the trams are in overall advert schemes which adds extra colour to the city.

Our filming starts at Fischer Strasse and moves to the busy centre of the old town at Moritzplatz. Further filming takes place at Rathausplatz, Karolinenstrasse, Fuggerstrasse and Köningsplatz. We then move to the historic small town of Ulm in southern Germany. Electric trams go back to 1897, and to this day they run on metre gauge track, just operating one route. Route 1 goes from Sölfingen to Böfingen. The fleet consists of 10 Combino (Siemens) trams in an attractive pale blue, white and black livery. Each of the trams are named, with their name carried vertically on the side near the front of the car and above the fleet number of the front and back of each set. Our filming takes place at Bahnhofplatz on Friedrich-Ebert-Strasse and along Olgastrasse.

The final system that we visit on this programme is to the attractive and historic city of Freiburg, situated between the Rhein and the Black Forest. The trams operate through the narrow streets of the city centre and through the old city gate towers before serving the suburbs around the city. Electric trams began in Freiburg in 1901 and also run on metre gauge track. The fleet is made up 5 GT8K (Duewag), 11 GT8N (Duewag), 26 GT8Z (Duewag) and 18 Combino (Siemens) and operate in an attractive dark red and white livery and run on 5 routes. Our filming starts at Hauptbahnhof. We then make our way along Bertoldstrasse to the busy Bertoldbrunnen and then along to Salzstrasse. We continue to Kaiser-Joseph-Strasse and see the trams running through the historic city gates. More filming is done in the city centre. Probably one of the most attractive cities in Germany.

German Trams 9 - Karlsruhe, Darmstadt and Köln (94-mins)

Ref: IT232D


Filmed in 2012, Karlsruhe is an interesting city, much rebuilt after damage inflicted during the Second World War. The main focus of the city is the palace of Prinz Karl-Wilhelm from which the streets radiate out from. The pedestrianised main shopping street and the Marktplatz is served extensively by trams and many interurban lines, including the Albtalbahn (AVG) which run long distant services to the north and to the south into the Black Forest. The electric tramway started in 1900 and is built to the standard gauge of 1435mm. The fleet is made up of 14 GT8 Duewag trams dating from 1972, all immaculately presented in the fleet livery of yellow and red, 45 Duewag/Siemens GT6-70, 20 Duewag/Siemens GT8-70 and 25 Vossloh Citylink NET 2012. Some of the Tram-train fleet is also seen on the programme, mostly of Duewag manufacture. Our filming starts in the early morning at the busy Bahnhofplatz and then moves along Augarten, Ettlinger and Karl Friedrich Strasse. Action is also captured at the very busy junctions at the Marktplatz and Kaiserstrasse. We return to the Bahnhofplatz via Konzerthaus, Karlstrasse and Erbertstrasse filming at each of these locations.

Our next location is Darmstadt in the region of Hessen, a small town south of Frankfurt-am-Main. Electric trams started here in 1897 and run on metre gauge track. The trams cover a large area beyond the central area, out to towns such as Alsbach and Griesheim. The smart fleet consist of 10 Waggon-Union/AEG GT8, 20 LHB/Adtranz NGT8D and 18 Alstom/Bombardier NGT8D as well as 30 low floor trailers. The livery is blue and orange on a white base. Some cars also carry overall advertising liveries. Filming starts in the central area at Luisenplatz during the busy late afternoon rush capturing all of the action. We then film the trams at high speed along Rheinstrasse as we move along to the Hauptbahnhof to complete our visit to Darmstadt.

Our final visit is a brief one to Köln. Filming takes place at Neumarkt. The fleet, KVB, is now made up mostly of Bombardier products running in a red and white livery, of which are number are filmed during a busy Saturday afternoon.
