Railways Under and Over; Tram and Train, Prague 2000.

Here we have two forms of railway transport in an active image.

I’ve always liked photos that show transport on two levels (or more). This photo worked out well. I caught a tram passing below a steeple-cab electric in suburban Prague in early June 2000.

What makes the whole image more interesting is the tram passenger flagging the car to stop. This puts a bit life in the photo.

Incidentally, if you haven’t been there, Prague is one of the great tram cities, and offers endless opportunities for photography.

One thought on “Railways Under and Over; Tram and Train, Prague 2000.”

  1. I thought all tram stops in Prag were mandatory rather than request. Maybe the passenger is a visitor. Agree on Prag as a tram city – the street running certainly a few years ago was uncommonly fast. One advantage of bogie cars compared the new generation of what are essentially 4-wheelers, even if assembled together into improbable lengths.
