In the Berlin tramway network, Lines 87 and 88 extend beyond the city borders so they are not operated by the Berlin Transport Company. However, because the lines start at S-Bahn stations within the city limits, they are considered a de facto part of the municipal Berliner Tramway Network. It’s hard to believe one could come across a tram like this on single track in quiet suburbs less than an hour from the city center.
