New Katowice Trams



New low-floor trams will appear in Katowice in the next few days, according to Dziennik Zachodni. The new carriages will service the Silesian agglomeration for a dozen or so years. The thirty carriages were manufactured by PESA in Bydgoszcz. After a successful series of tests it is now time for the Twisty carriages to hit the tracks of Katowice. “The carriages will operate on the 35 route in Katowice,” says Andrzej Zowada, a Tramwaje Śląskie spokesman. Twisty trams are equipped with LCD screens inside for passengers and safety is provided by an advanced monitoring system. Thanks to a control system which detects and dampens skidding during starting and braking, even travelling on ice-covered surfaces will be safe.
