    It seems Alstom has made trams that can run on batteries. They only last about 600 meters but is used in Lyon for historic parts of the town where they do not want overhead power lines. I can imagine this could be very usefull for a limited area power-outage as well. Just to get the tram past that section.
    The original article is in Norwegian and I couldn't find any more details unfortunately. Interesting concept though...
