In the early 1930s, D.I. Kondratiev, as part of a group of Leningrad specialists, visited America to familiarize himself with local developments. The basis for the new model of the Leningrad tram was a tram designed by Peter Witt . The design was changed in accordance with local requirements: in particular, the width of the carriage was reduced. The first cars were built in the Central repair shops, located in the park named after Leonova . Subsequently, the issue was established at the Leningrad Car Repair Plant . The car received the name MA ( M otorno A of the American type), and its trailed modification - PA ( P trailer A of the American type), the people quickly became known as the "American". Later, the name of the car was changed to LM-33 ( Leningrad M offshore project 19 33 years) and LP-33 ( Leningrad P- trailer project 19 33 years), respectively.
LM-33 and LP-33 were produced from 1933 to 1939.
Trains LM-33 - LP-33 operated in Leningrad from 1933 to March 18, 1979.
On the basis of the LM-33 in the 70s, freight platforms similar to the 4435 car were also created. The last of them were decommissioned at the end of the 90s (Excluding the 4435 car). On the basis of LP-33, GP-20 model cars were created.
2 copies of the LM-33 have survived to the present day at the Museum of Electric Transport in St. Petersburg : passenger car No. 4275 (on the move) and a cargo platform based on the LM-33 No. 4435 (awaiting restoration). Also on the go is a trailed wagon LP-33 No. 4454.
