This tram was used for many years here in my city.
They went out of circulation by 1970, when the company Carris and the whole city started to invest more in buses, trams thus becoming a transport inefficient, since they always follow the same path around the city.
This tram photo is near my house, in front of company Carris, who brought trams to our city and today is the best company of the city. (government company)
around the year 2000 was used as a call center for the company's customers, but nowadays only serves as a monument.
There are plans to put trams back to work as a tourist walk.
