Paris tramway glides back to life, 70 years onBreaking News
Once criss-crossed by more than 120 tramway lines -- horse-drawn from 1855, then steam- and finally electric-powered -- Paris, like most major European cities, was gradually seduced away by the car and underground train, closing its last line in 1937.
Running 7.9 kilometres (4.7 miles) along an east-west route, just inside the southern rim of the capital, the new"T3" tramway replaces an overcrowded bus line and will eventually be tripled in length to encirle the whole city.
