We only stopped in the bavarian capital, Munich, to change trains. Of course we've had a little time, too, so we went out onto the streets to take some photos. Unfortunately it was raining cats and dogs - it was really hard to take photos, because the lens of my camera got wet over and over again.
A type R2.2 (not related to R2D2 of "Star Wars":) tram at the main station.
Munich - very much like Berlin - reorganised its public transit services recently, and some of the bus lines are now called "metrobus".
This old double-decker is of course not in active passenger service, it's only used for sightseeing.
Another R2.2 arriving to the main station.
And this was the vehicle we were waiting for: an "M-train" (a classic double-unit consisting of a three-axle motorcar of type M and a three-axle trailer of type m) on a sightseeing round-trip.
It hasn't even been 24 hours since we saw one of the brothers of this unit at Wehmingen. The three-axle configuration (two axles conveying the vehicle and one steering them into the right direction in curves) always remain special in my eyes. By the way these trams were fitted with tradtional bogies in Bucuresti, because the original construction did not cope with the bad track conditions there!
I guess this photo shows how unfriendly the weather was!
A type R3.3 tram at Karlsplatz, with the Karlstor and the churchtowers of the Frauenkirche in the background (and some cranes).
Too bad our journey was so short, I could've taken a couple of more tram cities. And nicer weather. Well, next time, maybe!
