This is the end of the line or the beginning? Depends on where you want to go 🙂 This is the tramstop De Esch, tramlines 21 or 24, the start or the final stop, you may decide!

P.S. Yes another tram photo, you have to follow my tracks…

The tram still runs, but really only for really necessary travel. On the door on the right you will see a sticker saying “keep 1.5 meters away!”. Spring has never been so beautiful and strange.

Stop in your tracks

This monday evening while waiting on the taxi to go home I noticed these signs at the entrance/exit of the tram depot here in Kralingen. Some are very clear “STOP” “STOP” but one is not so simple to understand. The sign “Rangeren, sporen 11 t/m 18” is not a sign you see very often! This sign tells the tram driver to stop there whenever he must drive backwards to park the tram on one of the tracks 11 up to and including 18. When he stops there at the line, the people in charge of the tracks, changed the track to the direction the tram has to go for parking… Thats it, just something you only know when you work there!

Crossing the yellow bridge “luchtsingel” you will see these tracks. Direction Rotterdam Central station or the south of the Netherlands. And don’t let the empty tracks fool you, this part is normally one of the busiest parts with trains in this city 🙂
