Double-articulated trolleybus in Luzern

Luzern is the fourth Swiss system to opt for double-articulated trolleybuses, but the third to take delivery — having leapfrogged Zürich (Luzern's order was placed in March, Zürich's in July last year and confirmed in March for delivery starting in the Summer of 2007). The first of three Lightram vehicles manufactured by Hess (and essentially identical to those of Geneva), is currently being used on driver training and will enter service on Luzern's routes 1 and 6/8 with the December 10th timetable switch.
