The Predecessors of Trams 28 & 128 (28和128號的前身)

Standard

Trams 28 & 128 are at first normal passenger trams before changing to open-top bodies, the renumbering story on those two cars together with 59 & 119 was intensely interesting.

28和128號未被改裝成開篷車身前,只是普通的載客電車。其編號的更改和59、119兩車的淵源,也是一個有趣的謎。

The former 128 and the “new” 59 are, probably the same car. Hints could be found on the 2nd & 4th lower glazing and the trolley.

One of my tram fans, has got vague memory on sporting the number “128” in the upper cabin of “new” 59…

這架59號相信是從舊128號改編號而來,從兩車的下層第二和第四隻車窗、及集電弓的款式或可發現端倪。

我的其中一位電車迷更隱約記得見過這架59號上層仍帶著”128″的編號…
