Description

.
The ‘L’ Class Tram was a tram/light rail vehicle manufactured by Grant Heavy Industries from 975 to 997. The ‘L’ Class was designated ‘L’ after the ancient Tyran designation for ‘50’ representing 150 years since the first electric trams trundled down the streets of Port George. It is notable as the tram that prompted the removal of the aging ‘D’ Class from regular revenue service, much to the chagrin of the general public.
.
Marketed as ‘the Super Tram’ to the general public, the ‘L’ Class’ first served on Route 3 - the busiest tram route in Port George - as the tram had improved capacity compared to any other tram class on the network. Though, some speculate Route 3 was chosen as the tram route passes by the Troscan Parliament and thus, would look good for propaganda purposes.
.
The design of the ‘L’ Class was a departure from the classic rounded designs of the 930s and 40s and instead emulated the sleek angular profiles of light rail vehicles found in the rapidly emerging Far East. The combination of overcrowding and rapidly aging rolling stock on Route 3 meant that commuters were eager to get a new tram. Unfortunately, early models of the ‘L’ Class had uncomfortably bouncy suspension, garnering it the unfortunate nickname of ‘L-Tram-poline’. Whilst the suspension issues were fixed in later batches of the L1 and improved further in the L2, the nickname stuck with the general public.
.
The ‘L’ Class continues to serve today and with over 300 being produced, it continues to be a workhorse carrying passengers up and down the bustling streets of Port George.
