semi low-floor / low-floor tramcar (tramway car) with EEF running gears (wheelset)


Explanation:
1. Das Niederflur-Triebfahrwerk SF30-TF für Niederflur-Straßenbahnwagen ermöglicht einen durchgehend niedrigen, podestfreien Fußboden in 320 (360) mm Höhe über der Schienenoberkante.

The motor bogie SF30-TF for low floor tramcars is used to achieve a floor height of 320 (360) mm above top of rail, throughout the car without the need for any steps within the vehicles.

2. In 1999 and 2000 20 low-floor urban tramway cars (niederflurwagen GT 8-70 D/N) and 20 two system semi low-floor tramway cars (mittelflurwagen GT 8-100 D/2SY-M) will be added to the Karlsruhe tramway fleet. The first five-section low-floor trams are in operation one tram line 1.
The new tramcars will replace a number of old Duewag articulated tramcars, but are also destined for the new lines and to accomodate the growing number of passengers.
