(16 Jul 2019) LEAD IN:Moscow is celebrating a golden era of tram travel, with scores of the old vehicles making their way around the city.Thousands of tram spotters from all of the country turned out for the extravaganzaSTORY-LINEThousands of Muscovites turned up to take a trip down memory lane on 19 tram carriages from various historical eras. The oldest tram on display had to be pulled by horses, the newest is still in operation. Horse trams are operated by a coachman and managed in a similar way to a coach."Here you need to feel the movement of the horses, so that when braking you do not run over them, so, there are certain specifics (of driving such a tram), but, on the other hand, the horses get used to walking between the rails, and so they go along their way on their own, you don't even need to manage them much," explains coachman Aleksey Ivanov.Driven by two or four horses such trams entered the transport system for the first time on 7 July 1872. Horse drawn trams were more efficient than horse drawn carriages, as the rails meant less friction on the wheels than dragging the carriages across paved streets. "It was initially arranged as an entertainment," says Gennadiy Narykov, from the Moscow Transport Museum."The Military Department laid the four and a half kilometres of rails and ran the trams. The trams have been a hit with the citizens who not only enjoy them entertainment but as a form of transport. " It was in the late 1980s and early 90s that Moscow Transport started collecting and restoring old trams for historical purposes. "We had to search for those carriages literally at some backyards, dachas, dumps. These carriages, their restoration is a result of big work, big money, big historical work," says Narykov.Since the introduction of electric trams, the basic principle of trams hasn't changed at all. Across Russia the tram is having a revival says Narykov: "Nowadays tram as a means of transport is having a renaissance. There have been ups and downs in the history of Moscow tram. Sometimes the city management pays attention to this transport, it used to be a promising one (at some stage), then it goes through some stagnation and even some lines are removed. Currently, and here we also rely on the experience of other countries, trams are developing all over the world, it basically operates as ground metro."Until this year tram parade was held once a year on 7 April, on the date of the launch of the first electric tram in 1899.However, the event became so popular with public that it was decided to hold it twice a year.Some citizens remember old trams very well, like Andrey Fufurin who remembers that he "definitely used to go on them. It was in the years of 1963, 1964."There are some celebrities in the collection too.This tram, built in the early 1930s, was the first in the collection. Restored in 1987 it became a movie star after featuring on a few well-known Soviet films.Trams of the past used to be less comfortable - there was no heating, the driver had to stand during operation and didn't have a cabin that would separate him or her from the passengers. Interesting enough, this particular model has what looks like a steering wheel.Tram driver Dmitry Teplyakov explains that when he was a child he was surprised to see the wheel too.However, "this is not a steering wheel, this is a parking brake," says Teplyakov.Technical models like this snow cleaning tram built in the 90s are also on show.Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/10201102858...
