  • OT: Amvas question - Trolley traces

    Do Russian trolleys have the same gauge track as the trains? In other words, could the trains run on trolley tracks? Thanks.

    Tram (or in american version "trolley") traces can't be used by trains, because they have more sharp bends than those needed for trains.
    The gaugage is the same though...(1524 mm, if I'm right)
    If you fire a rifle at the past, the future will fire a cannon at you.....

      No, they aren't the same. It is clearly seen even by an ordinary eye.

          Oh, Amvas is more correct. I mixed "tramvay" and "trolleybus".

          That what you called trolley is called tramvay in Russia and a Russian trolleybus is a wheeled bus with electrical engine which gets its power from wires over road.

          It is confusion due the same names of different things in Us and Russia...

            Andrey, you could see that I had taken "trolley" as "tram" in my post...

            To Barbarossa: I heard in Moscow even exists tran-railway crossing in one place...

            regards,
            Alex
