The "First Tourist" (T1) retrotram route was launched in St. Petersburg in November 2019. It leaves for the voyage from the oldest Vasileostrovsky tram fleet in the city, from where regular tram traffic started in St. Petersburg in 1907. The unique route, developed by Gorelektrotrans, allows you to see 500 sights and cross six bridges. But the main pearl and attraction of the route is the tram itself: it is a replica of the LM-33 car (popularly "Americanka"), which is popularly loved by Leningraders, and which is rightfully considered one of the symbols of our city. Such trams developed in 1933 continued to serve the townspeople even during the blockade, and left the streets only in 1979, having worked for 46 years. The modern "Americanka" was built by Gorelektrotrans in the style of a historic carriage, but equipped with modern electrical equipment and systems (for example, there is a USB connector next to each seat). In total, two replica cars were created to operate on the tourist route.
