Trams of Karlsruhe, Germany, are regarded by experts as being the finest in the world. Why? See this video to find out how they solved a complex technical problem so elegantly that its almost boring!
The trams are fully legally qualified both as street cars running under 750V DC under visual direction, and also as heavy rail trains running under 15KV power on the main line DB system under the DB signalling system. Drivers have to be qualified for both systems.
This means that they can zoom between cities at high speed, then cruise through the very streets, picking up passengers!
Brilliant way to make mass trasit more attractive.
My number one recomendation, go see it, you will be inspired!
