The tram, which received such a nickname for its yellow-blue coloring.

First St. Petersburg Tram
The first St. Petersburg tram of the English company “Brush”, popularly nicknamed “Breshka”. Not a single genuine tram has been preserved; this tram was built on the basis of the 1929 MS-1 car of the Krasny Putilovets factory.

Externally, the tram repeats the appearance of the very first tram. Route 20, Pargolovo - Lassalle Square.

Elephant
The post-war tram, for its appearance, received the nickname " Elephant " (for its large mass, rounded shape and upper body, painted in ivory). The most massive tram, the LM-47 (by the way, the LM-49 was the same elephant).

In the cockpit of the tram LM-47 ("Elephant"), the control handle of the course. I was struck by the fact that such trams still run on lines in Khabarovsk, in St. Petersburg retro equipment travels on routes exclusively for tourists.

More precisely, the “Elephant” is the one on the left, it is the most mass tram (LM-49 tram, produced by VARZ - now the St. Petersburg Tram-Mechanical Plant). Right - LM-47.

The numbers on trams in St. Petersburg have always been four-digit and the first digit indicates belonging to the park.
