The final outbound service from an abandoned metropolis covered in snow and silence.

While working on the post, I came across a charming YouTube clip (serendipity, huh?). Cameras were invented for such clips, “recording the moments in which the mundane becomes the historic”.

What was the attraction of the tram? The smooth, straight rails gave us a sense of security no other road vehicle could provide. A sense of cosiness, too, as the passengers rattled home in a warm atmosphere of steamed up windows, of damp coats and mackintoshes. This feeling of home was heightened by the friendliness of the crew.
