The newest trams in Da Lian are a rather ugly locally built  'low floor' DL6WA type (but only low floor if at a platform stop, not too frequent) and some rather nice 1927 cars with art deco light fittings and very authentic sounds, which should alternate with the newer trams on route 201, but seems to be every 3rd or 4th.  Route 201 is  very slow as it is fighting the copious traffic most of the way along it's route. The fare on route 201 is terminus to railway station CNY1 and railway station to other terminus CNY1 necessitating fighting your way to the ticket machine if you ride across the railway station boundary.  Fares are either paid by smart card or notes into a fare collection box.

All the DL6WAs we travelled on had loose covers on the seats
