Default Tramline 28 Lisbon at night

Found this video on Youtube. For me it brings back good memories of a visit with 2 of my kids some years ago to this beautiful town but besides that this is just a great video showing the old 1930's area tramcars that are until present day still service the normal daily operation (!) on a busy schedule in the sometimes ridiculous narrow streets with amazing curves and slopes.

Hope you like the video. I personally think it is a gem!

We did it a couple of years ago, and it was just as good as the video shows.

Paulus;

Thank you for the video. The use of gauntlet tracks on some of the narrow streets was interesting.

In my early teens, I took a ride on the Red Arrow Lines from the suburbs into downtown Philadelphia, PA. That particular line was on private right of way, so the cars could go as fast as 55mph in some zones. The ride seemed more like a "Wild Mouse" ride at an amusement park than a trolley ride!

Best wishes,
David Meashey

Man, those Lisbon trams climb some pretty steep grades for adhesion only rail operation.

I did that a few years ago. Very fun. Some of the hills had to be at least 15%! Watch out for pick-pockets.

Glad you all liked it and even brought back memories for some also :-)

I was pointed out that this specific Lisbon tram nr 28 is sold as kit in 1:24 scale that can run on 45mm track. Manufactured by Ocre in Spain. They also suply a fitting motor unit for it.

The have some nice other kits as well. Has anyone experience with building those kits?

See: http://www.occre.com/model-tram/lisboa.html

I have enjoyed visiting this line too. The warning about pickpockets is to be taken seriously.

Folks;

Do not wish to derail the thread, but curiosity has moved me to ask this question. Is the felonious art of picking pockets even practiced in the United States of America anymore? It seems to me that it has gone to the wayside because identity theft and stealing credit card information are far more lucrative.

I have to carry my credit cards in a little metal box now. That requisite was unknown fifteen years ago.

Just asking,
David Meashey
