STIB tram 7727 at Koeningstraat in Brussels. It is a PCC tram from the 1960s. PCC stands for President's conference committee. They were originally US trams from the 1930s that USA donated free or sold cheaply after the war as part of the so called Marshall aid programme. The Belgians got a licence and built more PCC trams themselves. This is a later development which is based on the technology of the original PCCs. Picture 5.9.2002 by Ilkka Siissalo.
