400 Series bogie tram #432

15 june 2009 - Lille (FR) - Marcq-en-Baroeul. For the 1994 modernisation, Transpole built a new depot, but the old depot nearby remains abandoned. They also raised the line voltage from 600 volts to 750 volts. Here in the old depot is an example of what was lost when the Breda cars arrived – a 400 series bogie tram from 1911. It’s covered in pigeon shit and feathers, but is still a lovely tram. This ran in service until the 1950s, but can’t run now – there are no connecting tracks and the voltage is too high. I think it last ran for the 70th anniversary in 1979 – but won’t run for the centenary this year - very sad.
