Photographer's Note

The Vienna tramway network (German: Wiener Straßenbahn-Netz) is a vital part of the public transport system in Vienna, capital city of Austria. In operation since 1865, the network reached its greatest extent during the interwar period (1918–1939). Today, it is still one of world's largest tram networks, at about 172.1 km (107 mi) in total length.

The trams on the network run on standard gauge track. Since 1897, they have been powered by electricity, at 600 V DC. The current operator of the network is Wiener Linien. In 2009, a total of 186.9 million passengers used the network's trams.
