Narrow/Metre Gauge
Metre gauge is the designation for track with a width of 1,000 mm.
Of the three tramway systems in Denmark, only Aarhus used metre gauge.
This gauge is still in use in several European cities.
  Standard Gauge
Standard gauge is the designation for track with a width of 1,435 mm, as used by most railways in Europe.
Most tramway systems also use this gauge. The tramways of Copenhagen and Odense were in standard gauge.
  Horse-drawn buses and trolley buses
Tram and bus operations began before electricity made its appearance. The Tram Museum is in possession of both a horse tram and a horse bus. Trolley buses have been used in both Odense and Copenhagen. Trolley buses are electrically-powered, and receive their current via overhead cables.
  Petrol and diesel-powered buses
The four tramway companies in Denmark also ran bus services, in addition to their tram routes.
The Tram Museum is in possession of several buses representing various different periods, all the way back to 1913!
