Zürich trolleybus update

swisstrolley With deliveries of new Swisstrolleys making good progress, they are now increasingly appearing on route 32. The highest new trolleybus number I have sighted so far is 157.

Four different Roumanian operators are reported to be interested in obtaining withdrawn GTZs. VBZ, however, only wishes to pass them on to two different towns. Which these will be has yet to be decided. Furthermore, various vehicles have recently been scrapped for spares and two are being retained for driver training duties.
