As promised here is the first instalment of my travels.
To kick off we are in Tallinn, Estonia, the Baltic State immediately opposite Helsinki in Finland of which more in the next mail, it is May 2013.
As a former soviet state, the fleet has a number of aging vehicles, surprisingly the municipally owned operator in Tallinn, the major city and capital operates buses, trams and trolleybuses. Trams are painted in various liveries whilst buses are green and trolleys blue although there are numerous allover adverts. Below we have a tram, a modern low floor trolley and a superb older articulated trolley of which there were still a significant number in service!

More to come tomorrow, when we also pop over the border to Finland, where we find a beer tram??? Not to be missed!
