Frankfurt Trams From the 1960s to the 1980s Through Fascinating Photos

The Frankfurt am Main tramway network is a network of tramways forming a major part of the public transport system in Frankfurt am Main, a city in the federal state of Hesse, Germany.

The network is the oldest light rail system in the city, the first horse tram lines having started operations on May 19, 1872. It includes one of the first electric tramways in the world, with the first electrified tram line starting in 1884.

As of 2012, there were 10 tram lines, along with two special lines and one heritage tourist tramline. The network was also heavily integrated into the Frankfurt U-Bahn, with the systems sharing both street running and reserved track.

In 2012, the network had 136 stations, and a total route length of 67.25 kilometers (41.79 mi). In the same year, the network carried 49.9 million passengers, about 30% of total public transport ridership in Frankfurt.

Here is a small vintage photo set from TrainsandTravel that shows Frankfurt trams in 1967 and 1982.
