The Dubrovnik Tramway

30.01.2018. | Cultural Heritage

These four views of the Dubrovnik Tramway were taken by Niels Munch Christensen of Denmark in September 1966 . They were all taken at the terminus in Dubrovnik.

Tom Burnham writes: It was a small system of 760mm gauge, with a Y-shaped layout - this is at the junction (see point lever in front of the tram).
There were two versions of the 4-wheeled trams, one with a slightly more modern styling, running in motor-trailer sets. The afternoons tended to see power cuts, and the trams would regularly come to a dead stop along the Put Marsala Tita.

The following photos were taken by John Cosford in May 1966.
They were taken during the course of a visit by the Locomotive Club of Great Britain (LCGB).
