KTM-19, 71-619 - tram designed and mass-produced since 1999 in Ust-Kataw Wagon Factory (UKWZ) Russia. KTM-19 is the most mass-produced vehicle in the factory. Despite the use of stage design and construction of models of design solutions from KTM and KTM-5-8, is a totally new generation of tram cars. This tram runs mainly in Russian cities and in several foreign. Production of this model, saved a lot of lines, and tram network, even before the disappearance.


Tram has two names: 71-619 schematic and semiofficial KTM-19. 71-619 indication is the name of the schematic for a number of machines used in the former USSR, 71 means the tram, 600 - the number of factories (UKWZ), and 19 - the model number. Additional letters stand for modifications.

Name semiofficial KTM-19 is a model Kataw's Tram 19 Additional letters stand for modifications. In a similar manner determined trams produced in the entire Soviet Union, for example, means ЛМ tram produced in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg).

Background KTM-19Edit


Tram KTM-8 (in painting the same as the KTM-19) - the predecessor KTM-19

After the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 90s based communications the tram in Russia were technologically obsolete trams type-5 and KTM KTM-8. The situation was different in only two of the country's largest cities, Moscow and St. Petersburg - Moscow were the backbone of the rolling stock manufacturing trams Czechoslovakia (Tatra) and St. Petersburg provide support for local production cars (ЛМ series). In smaller towns, rolling condition was very bad. Prevented the purchase of foreign tram track width (1520 mm in the countries of the former Soviet Union, while in other European countries usually 1435 mm), and the cost of developing and then building a truck is one of the largest construction costs . In Ust-Wagon Factory Katawskiej been thus decided to develop new types of trams. Created several prototypes of the KTM-11 and KTM-16, but went into mass production until KTM-19. This enabled the modernization of tram fleet of Russian cities. In the production of specific models and then there were the various modernization and structural changes, which tram 71-619А is very different from the prototypes 71-619.

Differences compared to previous modelsEdit

The KTM-19 used many of the solutions of the previous models, KTM-5, KTM 8. The main differences are the elongation and narrowing include boxes. Used to measure the door opened just as the buses. Fixed a cab controls, an improved surface materials , as well as the light changed to a more angular (KTM-8 has a round).


KTM-19 has all the seats set forward facing. Under the left wall (the one without a door) are single seat, as in Konstal 105N trams and derivatives. By contrast, the right against the wall (with doors) are subject to a double seat. The seats are fixed, as in a tram Konstal 105N - on a metal frame attached to the floor and walls .


Tram KTM-19, like the previous models of KTM and KTM-5-8 and Polish tram Konstal 105N has two-axle bogies (BoBo axle). Carts come with a tram KTM-8 (with the difference that has been strengthened, since increased weight of the vehicle). Version of Rostov (STANDARD) is almost identical to what version of the broad gauge bogies, only slightly narrower) .


Initially, the KTM-19 used the Vienna-type pantographs, used very often in many different trains. As a result of modifications and repairs standard pantograph was replaced połówkowymi. However, in all types of modifications in addition to 71-619А (which uses only pantograph Half) and 71-619КС (which retains the standard pantograph) can be found in both copies of the Viennese pantographs.
