In Winter 1934/1935 the BVG company adopted a new paint scheme of cream with black outlinings which remained on Berlin trams, trolleybuses and buses for a very long period. Within the 1930s, the BVG acquired many new trams to its fleet, but the T 24/B 24 remained the mainstay of the system. During the Word War 2, approx. 100 T 24 motor cars were destoyed during air bombing and street battle in April-May 1945 and on 23 April 1945 the tram traffic in Berlin was stopped. It was restored on 20th May 1945. Until 1949, when the BVG company was divided to East and West separate companies, the much work was done to restore the tram service to normal as soon as possible. At first time, because of paint shortage, some cars were even painted in the military olive-green color supplied by U.S. Army. The destination signs both in Germany and Russian appeared on the trams and the safety slogans (Don't pass on the left) on four languages were put on the dashes.
