DPP #9111, Modrany, Prague, CZ, 2006
This is DPP's second-newest tram, #9111 (their newest is #9112). It breaks from previous Prague tradition in that it's not a Tatra or CKD, but a Skoda. Skoda have, over the years, built cars, trains, trams, and just about every other kind of durable and capital good that you could think of. I've even seen Skoda anvils!!! Today their main business is in cars, as Volkswagen own the company now and produce Skoda versions of the various VW models. They still build trams, though, and this one's a 14T Class, with the carbody designed by Porsche. Apologies for the scanner lines on this photos. I don't know why they're there since the scanner used for this photo didn't do this on any other photos.
