World's First Tram Sauna | Infrared Steam Spa Bath Massage Club
The world's first tram sauna unveiled in Milan. Unfortunately this real tram is no longer in operation and sits in one place at the spa resort in northern Italy.
But, created by public transport designers QC Termemilano, it has all the features of the original carriage - except now it's a bit more wooden inside, a bit hotter, and a bit stuffier.
It comes complete with hot coals and benches - as well as the tram's trademark pitched roof and open window views of its surroundings.
A sauna session can be a social affair in which the participants disrobe and sit or recline in temperatures typically between 60°C (140 °F) and 100°C (212 °F). This induces relaxation and promotes sweating.
The designers claim the idea is to show commuters that public transport needn't always be stressful.
A spokesman said: 'People can get very stressed travelling through a city centre.
'This innovative design is to show that not all public transport is frustrating. It can be somewhere to relax.'
The historical Carelli tram sits in the middle of a spa complex on a real track, all of its own.
And models frequently turn up to pose by it too, apparently.
