Gothenburg M32 tram

Gothenburg M32 tram, built by Ansaldobreda, a Italian builder.

The Gothenburg tram network (Swedish: Göteborgs spårvägar) is part of the public transport system organised by Göteborgs Spårvägar AB, controlled by Västtrafik in the Swedish city Gothenburg. The 80 km of track — making the Gothenburg tram the largest tram network in Scandinavia — is used by around 200 trams as of 2006, which serve twelve day-time and five night-time lines with a combined length of 190 km. These figures will increase when the second stage of Kringen (short for Kollektivringen, the public transport ring) is finished. The trams perform about 2,000 trips and cover 30,000 km per day.

These Ansaldo-Breda M32 trams are a disaster! They were delivered 3 years late and now all 40 of the first batch have been withdrawn from service because the floor frames are seriously rusted. This is causing problems for the Gothenburg tram network, with many routes having single instead of double tramcars and local politicians and local authority staff are being blamed for buying cheap equipment and not writing tight contracts.

And now the same builder is having problems with the new trains from the Dutch and Belgium railways. The high speed trains aren't running at all.....
