Panoramic view of Kontraktova Pl. Pullmans are still servicing Pusca-Vodycia direction, while -82 are servicing Peczersk. Route # 28 as well as its prewar predecessor are departing from Posztova Pl. and will come here in couple of years.

[1953, ]

The construction of second track linking Vul. Sahajdacznoho with Posztova Pl. not only improved the service allowing passengers for better interchange at Kontraktova Pl. but also gave the possibility to introduce /-1 trams from Darnycke Depot.

[1959, ]

-57 arrived to Lenin (nowadays Lukjanivske) Depot as a gift from Leningrad and during January 1958 was on test run on route 28. Unfortunately, pictures of this car on route 28 are unavailable, but there are plenty of pictures on route 5 (including this one on Pl. Stalina). This route was serviced by -57 only and was closed when this car was withdrawn.

[.02.1958, ( )]

The view of Posztova Pl. and Naberezhne Szose. Tram and one of -154 buses servicing Darnycia. It is from this place that one can see typical American body style of -154.

[21.12.1951, ]

The same place almost two years later. -154 often served suburban routes; most of them in couple of following years were scrapped or transferred to other cities.

Slightly different view of Posztova Pl. The switch between Peczersk and Darnycia direction are perfectly visible here.

During dozens of years interurban buses to then villages of Brovari and Boryspil passed Naberezhne Szose and later on Paton Bridge. However, pictured is -154 servicing route # 17 (Petropavlovska Pl. - Dymer) bound for garage.

[31.08.1951, ]

Such an interlacement existed only couple of months. Car # 891 servicing route 28 is pictured while passing Podilski Vorota. Unfortunately the building was demolished in July 1951 and interlacement converted to ordinary double track line. The same year # 891 started its service in Konotop.

One of the versions of modernized Pullmans performed by KZET in mid-1950s. Newly modernized # 1023 is pictured at Lenin Depot and after couple of years at Naberezhne Szose. In 1960 this tram was sent to Dniprodzerzynsk.

[1950-, ]

Apart from more or less traditional tram cars operating route 28, some unusual trams also appeared at Naberezhne Szose for a test run. Two-axle motor tram with trailer produced by KZET was aimed to serve little systems, mostly in Donbas area never came into production.
