The Hanover urban transport company Uestra purchased new trams for the
Expo 2000 type TW2000. After closing the World Fair (Expo) a few of their
older trams type TW6000 was sold because of the less needed capacity.
Budapest's urban transport company BKV also competed to buy them. They
hoped to decrease the age of their rolling stock this way meanwhile having
lack of funds to buy new ones. At last BKV got 68 of the offered 100 trams
and since have bought another 8 cars as an option, also two of them has been
already in Den Haag, The Netherlands (no. 6016 and 6021) and a few others
Wiener Linien, the transport company of Vienna, Austria offered E1
type tramcars built in the second half of the sixties to buy in 2002.
They offered them on an unbelievable low price so it caught the interest
of the MVK Rt. company of Miskolc: it looked as a possibility to change
and scrap the old and very bad conditioned FVV articulated trams...
