Number 6 to Sörnäinen

So here's a very non-interesting fact (details may or may not be exactly correct). The city of Helsinki bought a shitload of these fancy-pancy Italian trams a couple of years ago. Then suddenly, somewhere around November, they realised that Italians have no bloody clue on how to build a tram that be able to withstand a Finnish winter. So now half of the new trams are always being repaired and the city borrowed/rented/stole some old East-German trams from somewhere and they work like a charm.
I really like these and today I was first unlucky enough to miss my bus and then I was lucky enough to catch one of these rarities.
Hehe, I am ranting on and on about trams. And you are reading it. It's a strange world.
