Tram line 10 of Baselland transport has a kind of peculiar route through suburbs and surrounding villages of Basel. Eastern terminus is in Dornach, canton of Basel Landschaft. The route heads first to the city, and past the main railway station in canton Basel Stadt. Next the route turns southwest, again across the canton of Basel Landschaft. In Bättwil the line crosses cantonal border to Solothurn. Next the line goes though the village of Leymen, which is not in Switzerland but in France. Finally the western terminus is in Rodersdorf, which is again on the Swiss side of the border within the canton of Solothurn. Length of the route is 25.6 km, which used to be the longest tram line in Europe.

You're capturing well this tram by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, it's interesting and impressive to see the colorful/long tram with yellow and red, and simple station. It's effective for curved line, and the shadow projected to the track draws out a good effect in this image.

Terve, Kari, good morning!
Hmm, it looks some strange for me, usually I see one-two wagons only. Very nice old design, classic forms.
Good presentation of daily life in Swiss.
Have a nice week!
