Veteran Club of Railways in Poprad offered rides in the High Tatras on the red retro tram known as Trojča number 9. The tram was part of the Tatra railways for many years until it was replaced by current vehicles from Switzerland.

Trojča was made 50 years ago and commuted between Poprad and Štrbské Pleso. The next ride takes place on March 3 at 9:00. The club regularly updates the dates of rides on their Facebook page.
