Before we went on our ride, we were taken into the workshops and shown around. The workshop was very clean and tidy, well equipped and seemed to have no shortage of parts. From there we went into the office building expecting to be taken to a Museum room, but instead were taken to see a wonderful KTM5 simulator, which even had an electrically operated door from one room to another!

From the tour we rode along the route a little way to where there was a bridge and we spent some time there watching the shift change trams passing, full of passengers
