Tramscape Tramway Photographs


Essen, Germany : 27th-28th March, 1995
The opening in November 1991 of the tram and duo-bus tunnel from Viehofer Platz to Berliner Platz with the ramp at Krupp Hauptverwaltung brought about the closure of the replaced surface tracks plus the trams at Limbecker Platz and the direct link to Alfred-Krupp-Schule via Schederhofstrasse. Photos show the ramp at Krupp Hauptverwaltung, plus views of the closed surface tracks, including two of replacement buses at Schederhofstrasse.

Photos in Altenessen around Badeanstalt and Karlsplatz show the surface alignment in this major northern suburb, subsequently closed in 1998 north of Altenessen Bahnhof in conjunction with the further extension of the Stadtbahn tunnels following their opening from Universitat to Altenessen Bahnhof.

Other tram stops illustrated are Volkshochschule, Aalto-Theater, Kronprinzenstrasse, Moltkestrasse plus various views in the southern suburb of Bredeney. Photos also include the Stadtbahn tunnels in southern Essen at Martinstrasse and Ruttenscheider Stern, and at Hauptbahnhof and Porscheplatz in the city centre. Two views at the open-air terminus of the Stadtbahn branch to Messe-Sud/Gruga show car number 5203, one of the former London Docklands cars, now running in Essen.
