The first car for Croydon (no service number on it) left the works of Bombardier Wien Schienenfahrzeuge AG (BWS) in the night of 13 July and ran - hauled by works car BH 6400 (ex B71) and followed by works car BH 6492 (ex B99) of the Wiener Verkehrsbetriebe - across the Vienna tramway network to the Central Workshops of the Wiener Verkehrsbetriebe for test on the test track there. These pictures were taken just after leaving the BWS-works in the Donaufelder Strasse.
