Introduction

Some tram systems advertise their depot workings and enable one to ascertain the regular use by passenger-carrying services of junctions or sections of line that do not otherwise see public service. This occasional series lists such services that have come to notice. While the data for each system is current at the date stated, it is not the intention to endeavour to keep every entry up to date at every service change - the listing serves as a guide for travellers as to the sort of services they can look out for, enabling them to check current published timetable material at their time of travel.

To assist in tracing services, the route and/or timetable number for each journey is shown in parentheses, e.g. (1). Days of operation are in English notation (respectively: Su, M, T, W, Th, F, S) - plus "O" for only, "X" for excepted. Su (Sundays) usually includes public holidays in mainland Europe - but check locally.

Listings for other systems throughout the world - in the same format as shown below (please include date of timetable validity) - will always be welcomed.

Brno: DPMB

Advertised journeys in timetables as at 9 December 2018.

Krásného - Stránská skála smyčka

Route 10. An hourly service apart from every 20 minutes Monday- Friday early mornings and afternoons.

Moravské náměstí East to South

Note this curve is only used in one direction by route 9 starting its city centre circle towards Hlavní nádraží

Nové sady–smyčka loop

Special Rail replacement tram service P6 and all route 10 use this complete loop one stop west of Hlavní nádraží on arriving/departing. The P6 is running approximately every 30 minutes until the December 2019 timetable change whilst the railway service is reduced between Brno Hlavní nádraží and Královo Pole nádraží

Komín smyčka loop

Inbound services terminate at Komín vozovna stop and run out of service onto the large loop but there is a pick up on it as it is approximately half way between the Svratecká and Komín vozovna stops. This loop is only used between 08:57 and 14:47 Daily.


Note unless stated the following TSUL Journeys do not operate during July and August. Timings from on-line stop timetables. There are also a number of large Terminal loops with infrequent use to the in and out stops but no complete circle passenger use and these are not mentioned here.

Hlavní nádraží North to West

Route 8 05:14 SSuX towards Starý Lískovec smyčka plus Summer weekend only vintage route 4 journeys. Note these depart from the stop in Ul. Masarykovo

Mendlovo náměstí East to West

A few advertised Pisárky Depot journeys on routes 5 and 12. These timings are from the last normal line of route stops on Route 5 at Nemocnice u sv Anny at 07:42, 08:29, 17:09, 18:19/29, 19:21/31, 21.11/44 & 22.44 SSuX 19:31, 22.14/29/44 SSuO or on Route 12 at Česká North stop 22:44 SSuX [all year].

None shown going into service on routes 5 or 12 via this curve but is used eastbound by some route 1's terminating at Mendlovo náměstí which reverse using the loop accessed beyond the East junction. These depart Lipova at 21:15, 22:46, 23:01/16 Daily

Vozovna Pisárky

The previous entry journeys are advertised in service to Vozovna Pisárky as there is a stop on the 180º curve of the Depot Access line very close to but at a higher level than Pisárky tram stop. They leave the normal route some distance after the Lipova stop and continue parallel at ground level to the passing route which drops into a cutting. This is about 300 metres off route in total.

Liberec: DPML

Advertised journeys in timetables as at 1 September and 17 December 2016.

South-west curve and part of depot branch at Rybníček

Depot workings from and to the western (Horni Hanychov) end of routes 2 and 3. Departure times from the Depot Access Road are marked at Rybníček with note T ("departs from stop on Tatranské ulice"); towards the Depot from Nádraží are marked note R ("runs only to Rybníček stop").

1. Westbound departures from Rybníček, Tatranské ulice stop: 04:09 (2) 04:18 (3) 04:38/59 05:54 (2) 06:14 (3) 06:41 (2) 19:43/58 (3) SSuX OR 04:14 (2) 04:32 (3) SSuO

2. Eastbound departures from Nádraží: 00:48 (3) 08:00/29 (2) 18:16 20:01 23:03/18 (3) SSuX OR 20:16 23:03/18 (3) SSuO. It has been noted that these workings, particularly those after 23:00, may run early.

South-east curve and part of depot branch at Rybníček

There are numerous Depot workings inbound from Fügnerova on routes 3, 5 and 11 marked in the timetable with note R ("runs only to Rybníček stop") . While there is a stop of this name before the junction it is possible to travel to the identical stop name on the Depot Access Road used by trams terminating via the south-west curve entries above. This curve was traversed on such a route 11 working in Feb 2017 with normal passengers alighting at the Depot Access Road stop in lieu of the Rybníček stop "proper". Other rote 5 workings were observed with passengers on this curve. The times at Fügnerova are

Route 3: 00:39 08:16 16:58 17:30 18:19 19:07/19 23:03 SSuX 19:48 23:07 SSuO

Route 5: 06:11/26/41/56 07:11/26/41/56 08:11 13:11/26/41/56 & repeat until 19:26, 21:15 22:35 23:13 SSuX 02:45 17:56 21:15 22:35 23:13 SSuO 18:26/41 SO

Route 11: 01:10 17:03/18/33/48 18:03/18 20:03 23:18 SSuX 21:21 SO 23:18 SSuO

Fügnerova loop

Routes 5 and 11 with limited exceptions run beyond Fügnerova to the Depot or Viadukt so what was the previous deleted Connecting Line TSUL entry is the norm, it is the loop that is now rare. There are no advertised workings to/from the depot on/off the loop; it is only scheduled in the anti-clockwise direction with associated curves. Note the curve from the loop towards the Depot is Standard Gauge only.

Westbound departures from Mlýnská inbound to loop:

1. Route 11 in timetable dated 1.9.2016 at 00:13 daily, 01:08 SSuX, 01:13 SSuO 02:13 SSuO, 22:50 Daily

North curve on triangle near Most, zimní stadion

Route 3, from Litvínov, Citadela to Most, nádraží, covers the third north side of the triangle near Most, zimní stadion. This only runs in the early morning of Monday - Friday, possibly associated with shift change at the CHEMOPETROL works. Based on the timetable dated 12.2018;

Route 40, from Most, Dopravní podnik at 23.18 and 03.05 Daily; both trams run through Most to Nadrazi where they call initially in the outer platform before traversing the full outer circuit of the return loop in passenger service before again stopping at the inner platform. They then travel to Litvinov Citadela over the outer side of the north side of the triangle and subsequently return over the inner side of the north side of the triangle. At Nadrazi they again stop at the outer platform but return over the middle line through the middle platform before returning to Most Velebudica through Most. Based on 12.2018 timetable.

Vozovna Střešovice West - Brusnice East

The connecting line between Routes 1,18,25 and Route 22 has no regular use and has triangles at each end.
