Test on Rhine Crossing

On 3 February the first tram tests took place across the new Rhine bridge between Strasbourg (France) and Kehl (Germany). Bernd Köhl was there to take some photos, one of which is shown right. The last time a tram crossed the river was in 1944, when Strassburg was temporarily part of the Reich. The current leaders of France and Germany will inaugurate the crossing for passenger service on 29 April.
