Over to Ludwigshafen on the other side of the Rhine: a 6-axle D▄WAG car, manufactured between 1963 and 67.
Ebertpark: there's a one-track turning loop here, where cars of both directions pass through!
So does a car coming from the inner city...
... aswell as another one, coming from the suburbs.
They both travel around in the loop, and then...
... make their way further into their corresponding direction.
Trams approach the Ludwigshafen central station in a tunnel. The vehicle on the picture is a 8MGT of the RHB.
6-axle D▄WAG car of the VBL.
Ludwigshafen is an industrial city at the bottom, so it's inner city is not large, but it's richly pervaded with trams like this 6MGT of the MVV-V.
... or this other of the VBL. Notice that the cars from Mannheim are green/turqouise on white, while the cars of VBL have red decoration!
Back to Mannheim: Paradeplatz, where tram services meet. The vehicle in the middle is an OEG Variobahn.
8-axle D▄WAG car of the VBL.
A real oldtimer: heritage twin-set of the OEG, manufactured by Fuchs in 1928.
Not a nice train, but definately an interesting one!
Unfortunately we were forced to leave this city, because we've had to get to Kassel.
We hoped to catch that 12-axle car of the RHB again, but we didn't see it. Of course we already had our daily dose of classic D▄WAG cars, so it wasn't that frustrating...
