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.

Stockholm

Most of route 7 tracks are shared with Museum Tram routes 7E/N that operate at weekends from the beginning of April to the end of December from 11am to 6pm. During the summer, traffic operates Tuesday–Sunday. Timetables can be obtained on-line from Djurgardslinjen close to this date.

Routes 7E/N are the only services that cover the two following pieces of track.

Norrmalmstorg turning loop line

  • All 7E or 7N vintage trams are single ended so start/terminate on, and use a 0.5km clockwise loop around different side streets from normal route 7.

Skansen turning circle

  • Not all Museum Trams run the full route to Waldemarsudde, those on route 7E terminate short and use this loop with a stop on the turning circle.
