    1. Your article on the Old Trams in the 11.11.2014 dated Context is interesting. The average life span of a wheeled vehicle is defined as the standard 30-35 year in directives and regulations. In fact, similar to airplanes, trams that are regularly repaired and repaired are used for a longer period of time, unless they have difficulty in supplying spare parts. However, in the case of spare parts problems, lack of comfort criteria and incomplete or economic requirements, internal hardware failure, change may be considered. Of course, in this, modernity, aesthetics (the appeal of that city, the image en) etc. are also strong factors. Even in many European cities, even the oldest European city of Zürich (Ch), still older trams are used. 90'li so many years in many German cities in the 30'li GEBRÜDER-CREDilen (Kassel) company produced by the vehicles, despite the fact that this company 60'ler years closed, they use a case. It is another fact that nostalgia does not play any role. For vehicles that are considered old in this way, usually new networks, established and / or expanding and / or expanding, the 10-20 is a temporary financial optimization project for a yearly process. Same way; It is common and habitual to conduct a smooth transition period by servicing the vehicles that have been deemed to be old, until the cities which have additional network capacity and / or new cities that open up new networks have received the vehicles to be ordered and / or given. This is one of the rules of the economy. In such projects, the consistency of the soft transition project, its rantability is examined and analyzed. As a result, the deposited funds are obtained from the individual safe, not from the pocket, but from the country's safe, the taxes of each individual. Politicians are obliged to use this in the most economical, logical, effective and most efficacious way.
