Really Nice Trams

I'm out of Model-land at the moment, in Nice, southern France. While there, we travelled by double-deck train from Nice to Monte Carlo, Monaco and Ventemiglia, Italy.

Monaco / Monte Carlo station is in a hollow hill.
The trams in Nice are interesting, in that they lower their pantographs and (presumably) use battery power over certain sections such as the town square, where overhead wires would be undesirable.

A Nice tram with pantograph raised ...

... and with pantograph lowered, on battery power.

Back home tomorrow, so I can get back to the important business of layout-building.

  1. What are the requirements needed before you can have power in that land.
