Seville, Spain - September 9, 2015: On a warm summer night, Tussam tram (tramvia) #303 displays the “T1 San Bernadino” sign as it completes its power charge at Plaza Nueva in Seville. Tram #301 has just arrived at the terminus on its batteries, with its pantograph still lowered. While stationary at the terminus, the 750V CAF Urbos 3 trams raise their pantographs and charge their fast-charging batteries for the overhead wire-free journey through the historic centre of the city. The tram runs on both 750V overhead power and its own batteries to avoid ugly electrical overhead wires in the historic centre next to the cathedral.
