Volchansk, the smallest Russian town to have a tram

It has been in operation since 31 December 1951. The system consists of one line which is 7.6 km long (some of it with an interurban character) in the 5ft Russian gauge and has 5 tramcars.  There are 13 stops. The town's population is about 10,400.

Beg to differ. Frostburg, MD has a world-famous people-mover tram through downtown and its university.

Wikipedia: "The City of Frostburg has an approximate year-round population of 8,075."
