The Nostalgic tram is known as a touristic-operated rail system, with the emphasis on historical fabric as well as serving the urban passenger transport. The purpose in this is, in a way aim, to take a journey on the history of the people who come in that city.
The idea of a nostalgic tram was originally launched in the 1950 by the Talyllyn Nostalgic Train, which was founded and operated by a group of volunteers in Wales. This movement is a movement towards the preservation of the past, but has brought many '' Nostalgic Train '' to the present day.
The country where Nostalgic Tram is the most favorite is the USA. In many cities, Nostalgic Tarmvay lines, which can also be called historical street trams, have taken their places beside modern light rail systems. As with the rest of the world, the aim of its supporters in America is to present a history of 50, perhaps 100 years, to the 21st century people by using this kind of simple and reliable transportation form. Such trams were not suitable for disabled use, although most were later modified.
These systems are successfully operated in more than twenty cities in the USA. Besides, it is about to become a part of the transportation system in some cities.
Hong Kong Trams in Hong Kong are also seen as part of the Hong Kong heritage.
Most of the historic tram lines in the UK were lifted before the Nostalgia Movement began. Rails and trams were already scrapped. Now the trams seem to be going back to the UK, but they are described as modern trams.
The symbol of the 1900s
The Nostalgic Tram (Heritage Trolley or Vintage Trolley) refers to the current nostalgic use of trams designed and used between 1900-1950. These are the imitations that have been made today without disturbing the appearance and technical features of the old trams belonging to the first half of the 20. In some areas, the Nostalgic Tram (Vintage Trolley) now serves as a regular wagon, while the Nostalgic Tram (Heritage Trolley) is used as a copy or imitation tram, but most of the time means the same.
These trolleys are divided into small, single railcar designs (as two axles fixed to the wagon body so that they do not rotate around them) and a wider double wagon design (with a four-axle axle fixed on both wagons and an axle that will rotate around itself). The length of single ones is usually less than 9 meters and has a seat capacity of 25-30. Street trams were used as single wagons from the original electrification models of the 1890 years to the development of the dual models after about a decade. 20. At the beginning of the century many of them either disappeared or lost their importance.
With the Birney Safety Car presentation during World War I, they became popular again with modern, lighter and single-person models (formerly a crew of mechanics and conditioners) and continued to be used in small towns for years. The double models are usually 10-15 meters long and have 45-70 seat capacity and 20. It is considered as the ancestor of the trams used throughout the century.
Trams are working with 600 volts electricity from the wires passing through the tops. The return of this direct current power to the power center is provided by rails. These trolleys have two or four motors that are parallel to the axles in old models and are mounted perpendicular to the axles in new models. The brake systems work with compressed air. Compressed air to provide braking is achieved by electric compressors.
