PCC cars with sand caps. I think they personally remind me of the paint worn by the Brooklyn cars.

Have You seen many similar tramways, when You were younger?

Sadly, no. Streetcars had pretty much disappeared in the USA by the time I was growing up. I do remember riding a PCC streetcar in Washington DC in about 1963, when I was ten. According to one Wikipedia post the DC streetcars were dismantled in 1962, so I may be off by a year or two. I also seem to remember seeing abandoned track in New York city,

I spent a couple of weeks in Dubrovnik in 1966, and spent quite a bit of time riding the trams there. I have a couple of photos, which I should probably post. I have ridden various trams about Europe in subsequent trips. Vienna in 1983 and Munich in 2006 come to mind.

On this side of the Atlantic I have ridden the light rail systems in Toronto, Canada, San Diego, CA, Los Angeles, CA, St. Louis, MO, Dallas, TX and probably a few other places that I can't remember right now...

In the late 1990s I visited Hong Kong a number of times and rode the double-decker trams there! I have pictures of these too, but need to scan them.

In the mid 1990s I was a big fan of the program Bahn, in fact, with help from my mother I wrote an English translation of the manual for the program (see: [link] ).

If you ever go to the USA, visit the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Southern California!
