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


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.

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…
