The little Ventspils tram

This little tram offers a great opportunity to return to history, when small trams were found all over Latvia.  Until the 1960s, there was a narrow-gauge railroad that linked shoreline fishing villages along the shores of Northern Kurzeme.  Only a few remnants of the old tracks can still be found in nature, and there are only a few train stations or parts thereof.  Visitors to the Ventspils Open Air Museum can take the 1.4 km Circle Line or the 3 km Mountain Line.  The locomotive was built in Germany in 1916, and the museum features a station building with all of its elements.
