Quote from: jamespetts on June 25, 2016, 08:27:55 PMThank you very much for that. Can I check whether these figures are for a single car vehicle or for a multiple unit type tram as a whole?
QuoteEdit: The trams should work at full speed in drive by sight now.
Quote from: Vladki on June 26, 2016, 04:48:15 PMThat should be for single cars, but KT8D5 is articulated tram - have a look at the czech page with graphs (a few posts ago), there is a picture of the tram as well.
Quotenope, it does not.
