Tramway routes in Turin
Facts and curiosity about Turin tramway network
- On December 18th 1883 a storage
battery tram circulated, for the first time, along Turin tracks.
- The only narrow gauge interurban
tramway was the Torino-Saluzzo route. The gauge was 1.10 m, so this
line shared with urban route number 7, in the section in common, the
only rail right track.
- The 27 route was the most short-lived
line: it circulated for 102 days only, shortly after the end of
World War II.
- In the same period the circle lines number 16 (clockwise and
anticlockwise) were for a short time named “red circle line" and
"blue circle line".
