(Germany )NORDHAUSEN

Nordhausen
Unless its low number of inhabitants (50.000), Nordhausen has a metric gauge tramway network articulated in 2 lines (7 km long, built at the beginning of XX century). The central point of the system is located at the railway station, where a double track ring allow urban electric trams (internal track) and diesel trains (external track) from Ilfed to invert their route at the terminal. Currently the local railway adopts dual rolling stock (Siemens Combino-Duo, able to run in tramway mode and in diesel train mode), in order to allow some trains to continue their run along tramway tracks without any vehicle interchange at the railway station.
