English Webpages

We no longer offer English language pages! Google has a free translation service for many languages – this is our website translated by them into English. Yes, that translation is far from perfect but using their service should allow you to browse the content of our site more easily. If you want to surf the history of our website (this includes our old English language pages) why not visit us on web.archive.org. If you want to find out about tramway events visit our „BS Terminkalender (Events Schedule)“ which includes many links to German tramway museums.

Our most visited page „Trams der Welt (Trams of the World)“ has a list of all the tramways & trolleybus systems in the world in English! Peter Sohns offers this list also in MS access format. His database is called „World ’s Database“ and includes opening dates, remarks and also lists all abandoned systems from around the world! He is also selling excellent track maps from systems around the globe. Click the links or contact him by email.

May 27th until Jun. 17th., 2018: Trams and Light Rail along Mississippi River

We have chosen the United States of America as the destination of our last big Intra Express tour as this is one of the most fascinating countries for tramway enthusiasts. Having visited all Light Rail systems, and trams on the East Coast in 2015, we do the same in the central part of the country this time where most of the recent openings have taken place. We follow Mississippi River for about 2,500 miles all its way down from Minneapolis via Saint Louis and Memphis to New Orleans – including detours for example to Arizona and Texas not to miss any tram. On this unique tour we pass no less than 13 of the country’s 50 states, visit famous cities, cross fantastic landscapes, and learn to know more than a dozen tramway (and light rail) systems, six of them opened between 2004 and 2017, and never visited by an Intra Express group before. Additionally we visit nearly as many heritage tramways featuring classic PCC cars and Interurbans.

Our final tour (Belarus) is already fully booked!
