How to determine the tram number in St. Petersburg from afar

In St. Petersburg the tram number can be determined from a very long distance, when the number is not yet visible. Each tram has 2 lights above the windshield and each route has its own set of colors. For example, route # 6 has both blue lights.

Tram LM-33 ("American"). Apparently, lights of different colors on the tram routes of St. Petersburg almost from the very beginning opening of tram traffic in 1907 year.

Interestingly, I have never seen anything like this in Russia in any city. But this is very convenient! Of course, for example, in St. Petersburg, you can track the movement of certain public transport routes using Yandex Maps, but not everyone has smartphones, and many still do not know how to use them.
