This tram does NOT go to Fleetwood

October 26, 2015

 

A dramatic tram design appeared in Oslo in the late 1930s with the appearance of ultra stylish bogie cars - soon nicknamed 'goldfish' (in Norwegian of course).  These were dramatically different from the traditional wooden two axle trams which were of standard appearance throughout European towns and cities (more or less).

 

The 'goldfish' design was unique to Oslo, unreplicated anywhere else.   Fortunately they lasted in service into the 1960s, thus entering an era of tram preservation.  Two examples have been retained in Oslo at the city's tram museum which can be seen only at very restricted hours over the weekends/
