The meter-gauge trams were surprisingly spacious, with comfortable upholstered seats.

Pfüeti sign - photo

In the final days of Stuttgart's meter-gauge streetcar network, trams were painted with farewell messages. "Pfüeti" is a word in the local dialect that means "May God be with you."

In addition to streetcars, the tramway museum has a vintage Mercedes-Benz coach from a bus route that replaced a streetcar line in 1961. The bus left service in 1976, spent the early years of its retirement at a museum in Heidelberg, and was subsequently restored over a nine-year period at a cost of 300,000 euros. (The bus is now used for special events and private rentals.)
