Nice Tram

Here is a Youtube Video showing an inauguration of Tram service in Nice, France.

What is interesting about the ice system is that while it has overhead wires over most of the route, there is three short sections in extreme historical areas where the trolleys run on a battery power. The reduces performance substantially but it is an interesting concept.

Here is another short Youtube Video showing the arrival of one of the Nice trams at the end of the line.
