Just wondering if anyone has much info on the Port Melbourne line.
I know it closed in October 1987.
What was the reaction like to it closing?
Does anyone have any pics?
Might sound a stupid question, but isn't that platform a little high for a B2 tram?
And there was the Southbank redevelopment being planned which the bridge and railway cut through. I'm not sure but I think the loading gauges may not have been ideal for the Hitachi and Comengs, anyway they only ran the Harris trains on them as it was direct to Flinders St since they couldn't go through the Loop being wooden.

That would have been the Taits. Harris were of a steel contraction. However, I've never seen a photo of a Comeng on the Port Melbourne or St Kilda lines, and the only photos I've seen of a Hitachi on those lines were in their pre-1978 set up (M-D 2-car sets).
