The 12 km (7.5 mi) long tramway line between Liberec and Jablonec nad Nisou in the Czech Republic is an intercity transportation system connecting these cities.

Overview[edit]

Its construction started in 1947 and the line became operational on 1 January 1955. Its gauge is 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 38 in) metre gauge, while most of other tramway lines built in Czechoslovakia at this time had 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 12 in) standard gauge. The line is single track with some places upgraded to double track. Over the time the line was also upgraded for higher safety.

Future plans intend to replace this line with Tram-train.[1]

The only similar intercity tramway line in the Czech Republic exists between Most and Litvínov.
