G-OH-1 This and the following three photos show various arrangements and intersections where trolleybus overhead intersects with streetcar (tram) overhead. "They all show diagonal crossings, and reflect a time frame where because of track works installing more tram track in the city so the existing trolley and motor bus services are diverted, with extra and temporary  wiring as required." Both are K&M. Note that the result is a lot of clutter. It is this sort of clutter that drives many people against overhead in North America. Photo by Simon Smiler. JUL 2009.




G-692-713 692 on route 2 and 713 on route 19. These two lines are being converted to streetcars (trams) and due to open in DEC 2011. At least two diesel lines are to be converted to trolleys in the near future making use of the redundant trolleybuses. Photo by Jürgen Lehmann. 22 SEP 2008. Courtesy of TrolleyMotion.

G-768-738-787 Upper photo: SwissTrolleys 768 and 738 (rue de) Velodrome St. at a new bus stop when the wires were moved over Velodrome St. because of the new tracks on Rue du Stand for route 19 replacing the trolleybuses. It is expected that Geneva will convert at least on diesel line to make up for the extra trolleys. The corporation is to place a tender for 33 new trolleys and an option for a further 7. 30 are expected to be retired.
