News 2021.05 - ULF Vienna ESC 2015

The Eurovisions-Songcontest-Variant

The model of the ULF was first produced by HALLING Modelle in 2015. The model, which is often called “Conchita´s Wurst” (sausage), measures an impressive 405mm. In the meantime sold out, the model is now available again with the new NEM652 digital interface and for the last time.




The ULF (abbreviation for Ultra Low Floor) is a low-floor tram that was developed by Siemens Rail Systems for Wiener Linien. The ULF is characterized by its axle-free running gear and one of the lowest entry heights for trams in the world. A total of 330 ULF trains were built for Vienna between 1994 and 2017. 

Due to the high maintenance intensity and repeated problems with the hydraulics, the ULF is not particularly popular with the Wiener Linien workforce. In recent years, the hydraulic systems that could raise and lower the entire train have been replaced by rigid iron bars. With an entry height of 240 mm, the ULF is no longer the lowest tram in the world (197 mm), but it is much more popular.
