New prototype tram 172, wooden-and-aluminium structure, was newly-built by HKT, resulting in a speedy and quiet motion. It is likely same as the standard car but alternative in the cabin as well as the LED display.
Tram 172 under testing, it seems more matching to be put the LED to the millennium car!
