Celebration of 50 years of Berlin 3006

Mon 30th September 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Access Tram in use

On Monday 30th September Crich Tramway Village will commemorate 50 years since the tramcar Berlin 3006 entered service on its original tramway in Berlin. The tramcar is a very important member of the fleet due to its adaptation as an access tram capable of accepting wheelchairs.

The tram generally runs, if requested by visitors on arrival, at 11.30am and 2.30pm, but on September 30th it will run regular trips from 10.30 – 4.00pm. as one of the main operating trams.

BVB (East Berlin Transport) uniforms will be worn by the tram crew and photographs and other items will be available to view as part of the interpretation of the tram.

Colin Heaton, Vice- President of the Tramway Museum Society, said:

“Our 50- year- old Berlin ‘AccessTram’ has given much pleasure to thousands of users who have been able to reach all parts of the museum”.
