Almost all cities
with tram lines organize events for fans of these rail vehicles. Elblag also
has its enthusiasts who meet to make a tour of the city at night by tram.
The Elblag City
Lovers Club has been operating since 2013. At that time, members in reflective vest began to
collect tickets, drivers, timers, tables and timetables. These memorabilia
could be seen a year ago at an exhibition organized on a tram in the Old Town.
Their passion is to infect others, so on the night of 22-23 August they
organized a tram ride through the city. The event was open and everyone could
take part. The club announced it on their Facebook profile.
On the journey of
the GT6-243 wagon, not only Elblag but also Gdansk and Germany did not go. More
than 20 people stared at the city by tram pavement on a daily unused route. The
ride started at. 23.40 And ended at 3.30. Previously the wagon had to be
rented, and the cost per person was 35 zlotys. The organizers have prepared
special tickets and direction boards to highlight the nature of the event. At
the selected stops the participants went out to take a photo of themselves.
Safety was also taken care of: the group was dressed in reflective safety
vests, and each of them was supervised.

We kept the spirit of the party, sang the song. In all Polish cities, where
trams are, I have friends - thanks to trips and integration. Now I'm going to a
mechanical college. What will later, I do not know, but I see myself in the
world of trams?
"My family is
working on the railroad, but I, as a toddler, was afraid to ride a
railroad," says Magdalena, who took part in a Thursday tram ride. - Later
I had to overcome and not enough that I convinced it and I was fascinated. Then
the first place was for me, and now there are trams. I'm going from September
to train for a typewriter on a racetrack, though I would prefer a tram. I
encourage all girls - interesting, because it's really cool. I hope
elbow-teammates will come up with such action more than once.
