The Old Russian Streetcar (still in operation...)

    Newer Older

    This is very near the center of town in Kharkov, Ukraine. They use these old trams that are absolutely on the edge of breaking down with every creak and groan.

      Is this selected color or is it really that gray?

      Fantastic image. Looks cold. Brings out a whole different era (1950's). When I visited the central tram terminus in Kharkov it was boiling hot and felt like 1973 :)

      Ha we have the same trams in Prague, but they are in much better shape. I love them. They have heat that comes out from under each seat. :)
