RUSSIA: PK Transportnye Systemy presented a prototype tram that it is building for Yevpatoria at its new facility in the Tver Carriage Works factory. The 20·5 m long, 2 300 mm wide multi-articulated Type 71-922 Varyah tram is designed for metre-gauge networks.

Yevpatoria envisages that it will order up to 27 new trams to renew the fleet in operation on its 20 route-km network. A previous order for a prototype tram from Ukrainian supplier Elektrontrans has been cancelled.
