Hello. I visited Usolye-Sibirskoye Усолье-Сибирское in September 2019. So i inform today’s Usolye tram.

KTM-5, KTM-8, KTM-19
KTM-5, 71-605 is common. This blue car somehow painted cerebarate USSR.
With beautiful lake Gorodskoyprud (Городскойпруд). I love KTM 5 so took many photos.
Modernized version of KTM 5 with square light.
КТМ-5 made in age 1963 to 1992.
Almost tram car is advertised.
71-619 (КТМ-19), Newest tram car in Usolye.
I think tram of Usolye is very often and useful compare to the next city Angarsk. In Angarsk sadly better to buses.
From Irkutsk to Usolye about 90 km, it takes 1 hour and 20 minute by RZD commuter train. When you visit Irkutsk, visit Usolye besides.
I respect Urban rail net.
