2451Prospekt Palladina, near the intersection with Bulvar Vernadskogo and Ulitsa Uborevicha. Trolleybuses came here almost simultaneously with the metro, when the new red line terminus, Akademgorodok, opened in May 2003. The photo was made only a week after the inauguration of route 39; the trolleybus has departed from the stop by the above-mentioned metro station and is proceeding towards the Borschagovka terminus of said route.

2452The crossing of Prospekt Pravdy and Ulitsa Vasiliya Porika in the district of Vinogradar. The 2452 is bound for Metro Nivki on route 26. Behind it is a Skoda 14Tr, most probably on route 36.

2453Inside Depot No. 2, among a crowd consisting mostly of Skodas.

2454Again at the depot. This is actually a rather rare picture, owing to the route sign on the 2454. This version of route 3 used to connect the residential areas of Vinogradar and Belichi, from the mid-1990s until 2001. Towards the end of its existence it was a rush-hour-only service. Again, most of the vehicles in this picture are Skodas.

2455The turning loop in Vinogradar, at the intersection of Prospekt "Radyanskoi Ukrainy" and Prospekt Svobody. The 2455, having completed its run on route 26, is about to turn around.

2456Ulitsa Scherbakova, the main thoroughfare of Nivki. The 2456 has left the Ulitsa Salyutnaya stop and is proceeding towards the center of the city (route 5).

2457One of the most beautiful seasons in Kiev, spring turning into summer. This is Severno-Syretskaya Ulitsa, approaching the Quasar-Micro (formerly Microprocessor) factory. This 2457 was the last YuMZ-T1 to be delivered to Kiev. Incidentally, the author of this picture was forced to explain to an overzealous guard that his target was the trolleybus and not the above-mentioned factory...
