The tramcar n° 2598 belongs to the series of 100 trams designed by the ATM in the early 1930s and built by Fiat Materfer, like the 2592 and 2595 cars, also restored. It is the first tram with bogies to enter service and with its more than 13 meters in length it was, for the time, the longest car in Turin. It served until the end of the 1960s when it was put aside, together with a large part of the series, in the new "Venaria" depot. Unlike its two sisters, the 2598 was a service tram: between 1971 and 2002 the car, renamed T402, became a tractor for towing damaged trams; the changes were important, such as becoming bidirectional (with the installation of a second control desk), losing the central door and switching to yellow and blue livery. The ATTS brought it back to its initial service conditions of the early Thirties: the 1971 modifications were eliminated, the original longitudinal benches in the front half, the wooden and concrete floor (the latter now simulated by a resin), the double row of seats, the single-leaf rear door and the large external writings indicating the use of the doors. With these characteristics it returned to service in 2010.
