Oslo's Standards

October 31, 2015

 The Oslo system's postwar cars were also locally sourced and unique.  A fleet of these square ended and somewhat utilitarian trams would become synonymous with the Norwegian capital's tram services up until the end of the 1990s.   

 Below :  former typical two axle trams that were supplemented by the 'Goldfish' cars in the late 1930s - and later by the new 'Standards'.  


 Oslo's current fleet consists of articulated models - below :


  It is worth noting that the system retains its pale blue livery with dark relief - so in keeping with Oslo's traditional colours.   


First generation trams were green with brown relief and of course a lot of lining out.   Examples are on display in this first class collection of Norway's capital trams.  Photos : Jessica Meryl-Rassow
