Delmez trams

Series 202-221

RET 220
              after modificationIn 1924 Allan constructed twenty tramcars (202-221) on single-axle bogies of the Delmez system. The Delmez-bogies gave the cars lively riding characteristics and were for that reason fixed. Around 1931 they were reconstructed with a two-axle truck, stronger motors and a pantograph.

But although they had lost the bogies, they kept the nickname "Delmez". In the mid-fifties they went out of service.

The 210 & 220 did survive. Except for the truck the 210 is in the original state, the 220 in the version after the reconstruction.
