Another surprise for me was to learn that in Russian a
trolleybus is just that, but I think pronounced
trollei-bus, and of course written in cyrillic.
I believe that in Russian a tram is also a tramway, or a tram-vei, or
the equivalent in crillic.

Russian transport terms are often derived from UK English. Don't forget
that the Russian for station (Vokzal) was taken back to Russia by a
visitor who went to one of Britain's earliest railway stations,
Vauxhall in London.
