Testing the first tram switch

08 April, Wednesday

On April 8, 1928 the tests of the city's first automatic tram switch were carried out

The tests took place on the crossing of Suvorovsky prospekt (known as Sovetsky by then) and 2nd Sovetskaya street. The switch was operated by an operator in a stand nearby; earlier the swithes used to be operated by switchmen.
