Ponte Regina Margherita and Corso Giuseppe Gabetti, between between Piazzale Regina Margherita and Hermada tram terminus with the intermediate stop at Borromini : Closed on October 1st, 2017 : Photographed on April 19th, 2015                                                                                            
This short tramway branch across the river Poalong Corse Giuseppe Gabetti and terminating at Corso Quintino Sella only came into back service in April 2015 with the introduction of the new line 6, having had services withdrawn in late 2012 for reconstruction work. This line has apparently failed to attract enough business to justify continuation and the last services were on October 1st, 2017. Only the short western end of route 6 was on tracks served by this line only and here, electric buses now provide the only service. Turin has a track record of closing routes but not lifting the tracks which always prompts speculation that services might be restored at some point in the future - as has happened on occasion, so there might still be a future for the steep alignment to Hermata, which until cut back in the mid-1980s carried on for a short distance north-westwards along Corso Quintino Sella.
