Long Trams in Ostrava, CZ

s_inekon_04_superior.pngThe city of Ostrava in the East of Czech Republic is to get the longest tram set in Czech Republic. They are also trying to claim that the tram is a record breaker for being the most powerful (at least this is what the article seems to imply). It has a capacity of carrying 300 people, but is not the most eye-pleasing of designs. Made by the local company Inekon – who also export tram systems to the US – it should be added to the local transportation fleet. No doubt they will be able to gloat over the fact that it will receive less criticism than Prague’s T14.
