The Essen classics in yellow and blue!

The classic six-axle articulated railcars (GT6) shaped the cityscape of Essen for decades. At the end of the 1970s and beginning of the 1980s, the majority of the vehicles were extended for capacity reasons and became eight-axle articulated railcars in single-unit design (GT8).
