Łódź! ~ Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Tomasz Adamkiewiczs, of Łódź, Poland (the 3rd largest city in the country, which incidentally, is pronounced "wootch") is living his childhood dream of owning his own tram. He found it in dilapidated state in a community garden, spent 12 years restoring it to operating condition, and christened it "Marilyn Monroe". The city transit agency certified it for operation, and after training, certified Tomasz as a motorman (although he does not have a drivers license). He now gives guided tours of the city, and has several more restoration projects in the works.

I haven't found this story in any English media (making this an "NKNCat scoop"!), but here's a link to a German story with video. Direct link to video is here (in larger format).
