Tram - History and Different Types of Trams
Trams are railway-based transportation vehicles that originally evolved from regular train networks into urban-based passenger transportation services when those railway lines became too embedded inside cities, making them unsuitable for transport of large steam, electric or diesel-powered trains. Modern trams (also known under names tramcars, streetcars, trolleys or trolley cars) are usually traveling on ground level alongside regular car tracks, but with clear segregation so that cars, foot and bike traffic is not using parts of the road where tramway is laid (except on crossings).
