Road Vehicles - Tram 100th Anniversary of the Arrival of the First Tram to Ljubljana

The tram - also referred to as road railway - was invented in the United States of America to solve the problem of transportation of large numbers of people in cities and larger metropolitan areas. Following the Siemens' invention of the dynamo (generator) horse-drawn cars were replaced by electrically powered cars. Ljubljana followed the introduction of the tram in large European cities in 1901. A total of 13 tramcars and two trailers were placed in service on 3 routes totalling 5,200 metres. Of all those tramcars only tramcar No. 5, which is today kept in the Technical Museum of Slovenia, was preserved and restored to its original condition. The stamp depicts the restored model.</p><p>Mag. Tadej Brate
