Vilnius [LT] - Vilnius trolleybus system

. - 05.09.05

Vilnius has an impressive trolleybus system! Mostly overhead of the Russian type is used but works were seen using Electroline overhead system of CZ. Because of the dilivery of new SOLARIS 15 m trolleybuses only few SKODA 9 Tr SU are still seen in service.
