trams also carrying freight in Vienna streets
The International Herald Tribune reports today streetcars transporting goods made their maiden trips in Vienna yesterday carrying goods instead of people under a new system. The plan is to carry goods needed to maintain the system on goods trams, and then perhaps also deliveries to businesses in the city, waste for disposal, and maybe also post.
