Today, there are several companies in Russia engaged in the production of tramcars: the Ust-Katav Car-Building Plant (UKVZ), PC Transport Systems, and the Ural Plant of Transport Machine Building (Uraltransmash).
Tramcars of the Ust-Katav Car-Building Plant are in use practically in every Russian city with tram service. 71-628M is a single-section four-axle tramcar with a completely low floor level and multiple unit system traffic capability.
The tram cars that the Uraltransmash plant has been manufacturing for 20 years are duly appreciated by passengers and the electric transport staff in different Russian cities. A tramcar of model 71-418 is a three-section fully low-floor car, completely equipped with assemblies of Russian production.
The tramcar system of the Taganrog public transport was opened in 1932. In 2022, the Taganrog tramcar will be 90 years old. By its anniversary, the city will receive an updated tramcar system and modern rolling stock.
Tramcar traffic in Yekaterinburg was opened on November 7, 1929.
The Yekaterinburg tramway service has 17 terminal stations, 3 tramway bays, a developed route network (31 routes), and 455 passenger cars in operation.
The postage stamps provide images of modern models of tramcars against the background of city sights: a tramcar of model 71-628M (JSC Ust-Katav Car-Building Plant) in Taganrog and a tramcar of model 71-418 (JSC Uraltransmash) in Yekaterinburg.
