Quietschvergnügt ~ Sunday, May 19, 2013

Is a word meaning something like "squeakingly/squealingly jolly" (the only other time I've encountered it was in a description of happy piglets), and is the tile of an article in Berliner Zeitung about the Centennial of the Woltersdorfer Straßenbahn, described as one of Germany's shortest streetcar lines. It is notable not just for its short length (5.6 km), but for the facts that is mostly runs through a forest (connecting the town of Woltersdorf with a nearby station of the Berlin commuter rail network), and runs exclusively vintage equipment.

You can read the article either in the original or via translation; there is also a link to a photo gallery. The Wikipedia page is extensive and has lots of pictures, too.
