Innsbruck Trams

I notice Dave F has been posting some photos of Innsbruck trams on his long running topic, and I know others also have photos of the Innsbruck trams, so I thought I would start a new topic just for trams in this photogenic location.


Here are my first batch of photos, taken in January 2003.




And a couple of trolley buses for good measure:

We visited Innsbruck a year or so ago and note the trolleybuses had all gone. We never really had time to look around as we were trying to find a hotel for the night and it was near Christmas and we'd been working all day at Feldkirch taking the clutch out of a Lodekka bus! Hopefully we can return at some time when it's not so rushed and we're not so busy.

Bl00dy 'ell, that takes me back! First went to Austria and Innsbruck in 1964, with the Austrian Alpine Club, for a mountaineering holiday. Charter train London-Innsbruck, via trams or as I recall a train up to Igls, cable car to our first mountain "hut" overnight, then back to Innsbruck and on to the Stubaital valley to start walking. A couple of weeks high-level trekking from hutte to hutte, finally back to Innsbruck for the last couple of days. I remember the trams well, travelling around the city in blazing sunshine. Innsbruck was, and still is a wonderful place. My wife and I returned in the 1990's (and our 50's!) and Innsbruck and Igls were just as I remembered, except the trams ran to Igls direct from the city centre. Sorry no photos survived life events since then. But thank you for awakening many happy memories!

Regards, David
