|5041||The second car of one of the few T2+T2 trains still alive
by that time, ready to pull out of the Darnitsa Depot onto Route 22.|
|5042||On the viaduct above the metro line, by the Komsomolskaya
(Chernigovskaya) station. Facing in the opposite direction is an Ikarus 280...
and a lone pedestrian running — possibly in order to catch that same Ikarus.
|5043||This this the only Kiev T2 car that has been preserved to this day.
In this picture it is moving along Prospekt Gagarina, eastbound,
towards Metro Chernigovskaya.
Quite probably, already in the role of a service car, as any route signs are absent.
|5045||Yet another special setting, probably from a trial run,
and possible at the DShK terminus of route 28.
|5046||Back in the 1960s, just north of Metro Dnepr
there was a rather unique piece of equipment — a tram turntable.
There is no room there for a turning loop or a triangle, as the line
is squeezed between the Dnieper slopes and the roadway, and this complicated
setup provided an opportunity to make short turns.
Here a tram has just pulled onto the table and is about to be turned around.
|5047||This picture is taken from a window of a tourist motor coach
crossing Most Patona, with a group of Western tramfans on board.
The car going in the opposite direction, 5261, is rather plausibly alleged
to be the very last tram car to have crossed the bridge on 9 June 2004
(under the number 5380).
|5048||A picture not that old, but extremely rare — from the
period of metro construction in the neighborhood of Podol.
The left part of the frame depicts the remnants of old tram trackage, which
used to lead to the former line along Zhdanova (Sagaydachnogo).
On the right, in the far background, is the Brodsky Mill building.
|5050||The final phase of the turn on the already-mentioned
turntable by Metro Dnepr.
Later on, enough rolling stock was delivered, so that this piece of equipment lost
its importance (it was simpler to have all trams go all the way to Podol)
and was demolished. Now, without knowing, it is impossible to even detect its former location.
|5051||On the old line on Zhdanova (Sagaydachnogo),
accompanied momentarily by a Volga GAZ-21 and surprisingly many PAZ-672 buses.
The corner building on the right houses a |
