author Bernhard Kussmagk, sent by Aare Olander
After couple of years the capacity of Tatra T3 was not enough to accommodate more and more passengers. In 1973 first Tatra K2 arrived and quite soon most of Tatra T3 were converted into service cars. The Sarajevo’s feature of both tram types is unusual location of pantograph
