Grenoble tram adds "wow" factor to city streets

The traditional tram was no great looker - though many feel great nostalgia for them. The Alsthom tram produced for Grenoble in the mid-1980's was the first modern tram to have real aesthetic quality and to enhance the image of the city it serves. Grenoble has taken full advantage of this, with its stunning sleek tram providing a dramatic contrast with both broad avenues and squares and, as shown here, narrow streets and a dramatic corner round which it seems incredible that such a vehicle can go, let alone one in each direction!
