Yes at last here we go with photos of our epic adventures through China and I thought it would be easiest to work backwards through the shots starting with our final destination which was Changchun where the traditional tramway has grown a route serving the new west railway station.
I took a few shots on the way to the airport of trucks and other than that it covers our tram/light rail visit to the depot which services both lines and illustrates the only remnants of the old fleet. Although now rather mundane the renewal in the last years of the high floor trams means that it has a uniform corporate look devoid of adverts and just tiny fleet numbers below the cab side window, the route allocation is pre- stenciled on. Much of the city has extended as have the roads, locations we saw before buried beneath flyovers. The cars 43 I think we purchased from Shenyang and not Changchun itself a tram producing city. The route to the new railway station itself opened last year is still being worked on with the curious sight of left hand running on the stretch to the west station terminus. We had our group photo shot with the tram management the top gun once more being a lady.
