Refurbishment of the Zurich Tramways Trailor No. 629

When the Rhine-Neckar Railway Museum still existed, we spent plenty of time for the care and maintenance of our vehicles. As an example, we are here showing the refurbishment of the Zurich so-called "saechsitram" trailor No. 629. The photographs below show this car during the years 1984 to 1988. Today, the car has been returned to Zurich and is there in use for special trains.
