The Mazací tramvaj (Grease Tram) in Prague, Czech Republic – Christmas Makeover

In January 2015, a special tram was launched in Prague. Red in colour with an ‘M’ on the front and the rear of the tram cut off – like a pick up truck.

The tram would appear at different times and on different lines. I started to wonder if there was more than one. I also wondered if the rear of the tram was supposed to carry goods or spare parts. Later I discovered that the tram’s purpose was to grease the tram lines and it was called Mazací tramvaj – there is only one.

I previously wrote about the Grease Tram here. Last Christmas the tram carried a Christmas Tree, with lights that you could control remotely and I wrote about that here.

The tram has been in the depot for months but has just emerged, with a large new canister fitted to the rear, plus Christmas Lights and an Angel.

A webcam has been added to the rear of the tram. You can see the lights and watch the tram’s progress via this site (sadly has a small advert before the live webcam). If you can’t see the video it means the tram is in the depot.
