Liberec, Czech Republic

Overview

The town of Liberec has an interesting dual gauge system which was up til recently all narrow (1000mm) gauge. In the process of modernizing the system they are regauging to standard (1435mm) gauge. It's not a very big tram system. The #2 tram from Horni Hanychov (cut back to Dolni Hanychov for construction when I was there, shows on the map as dotted line) through the downtown to Lidove Sady is standard 1435mm gauge. They have one preserved tram in wide gauge which we rode out to the Lidove Sady terminal. The 5 and 11 lines from Viadukt out the Jablonec interurban line is narrow 1000mm gauge. Some construction has started along this line to prepare it for wide gauge conversion. The tracks between Viadukt and Fugnerova are dual gauge, including the access to the depot which is down a side street approximately near the Rybnicek stop on all 3 lines. Access to the depot is dual; some of the depot tracks are dual, some are standard only. (Don't remember seeing any narrow-only but there might have been some.) We got a full tour of the depot, as well.
