Vienna Tram Day 2011
Vienna's annual Tram Day celebration was held at the Tram Museum this past September. It's always a great party with lots to see and do. This year was great because the Tram Museum was open for free! Lots of historic vehicles and exhibits on some of the new things Vienna's public transport company (Wiener Linien) is doing to improve service.
There was information on everything from the Wiener Linien's social networking strategy to rebuilding track. With entertainment for the whole family - on at least two different stages! - and lots to eat and drink it was a great day.
I especially liked the historic advertisement about why the conductor cannot open the door once it has been closed (below) - it even rhymes! All my Vienna Tram Day photos (2009 and 2011) on flickr.
