Remarks & Notes 
The metre gauge tramway from Triste to Villa Opicina is most unusual. It has an 800 metre section of steep climbing which requires the trams to be banked (pushed) by a cable tractor loco. I believe these helper locos have now been replaced by much smaller, driverless, locos which can be driven, in multiple, by the driver of the tram (streetcar).
