Calcutta's Trams 52 mins DVD


From Railstuff in Australia comes this lovely video showing operations on the last tramway system operational in India. Despite being seriously underfunded, it still provides a very useful service in one of the most densely inhabited cities of the world, using articulated trams rebuilt with considerable ingenuity from older stocks. Limited commentary, mostly confined to historic details, and stills, but with sound recorded on location, this is a most interesting video showing not just the trams, but the fascinating city they serve. Highly recommended.
