However, I will quantify that by saying this should ONLY apply to Belgrave and Lilydale se ...

Removing the seating is cheaper than running more than three trains an hour in the suburbs. And yes, the magical seat disappearance is also happening on the X'Traps too, they are having the first rows ...

Why can't protesters ever stick themselves to the West Gate or Citylink/Eastlink or Parliament House instead of blocking trams all the time?

It should be the other way around, improve the local buses first, then fix the trams. At least the 57 runs after dark and doesn't take Sundays off.

Now we just need to build a tram line from Mornington to Frankston to Sandringham to St Kilda and join up with the 96. Laughing

The original C1/C2 displays were way different, for example they had the route numbers to the left of the destination (designed for European right hand side traffic; the Combinos still have this setup ...

With the upgrade of the Citadis trams to the orange LED destos (similar to the Z3/A/B ones?), there is apparently no way for drivers to use Box Hill 109 without a via point, for example when a tram ca ...

When riding the 75, how did you find the track along Camberwell Rd? I can only think that the Scenic Railway at Luna Park is in better condition! It used to be just as bad all the way to Warrigal Rd b ...

This is what happens when you put light rail vehicles on tram tracks which weren't designed for anything newer than a W class. Get rid of flange running* and speeds will increase.

Last time I saw a Z3 in unfamiliar territory (last year) it was running outbound on the 75 in Power St just past Hawthorn station.

Edited for clarity: The Z3 I spotted was "Tram on Test" and was mo ...

Extending tram lines isn't fashionable right now, otherwise the 48 would have already been done and the people of Doncaster would be moaning about the non-accessible sardine cans known as A classes.

An X'Trap married a Siemens and a Perth train popped out?

If the Eastern Carpark becomes heritage listed, there is a possibility that there will be no legal way to modify the median strip to incorporate a rail line, nor will there be a way to amplify the Cli ...

Why did the driver not crawl the train through the crossing at 5 km/h while holding down the horn like they do in India? Or is it against regulation to proceed with green over red if a bunch of inbred ...

Especially when in some cases the class and number can overlap. For example, W3 659 is/was also a Melbourne tram, and is probably the first thing someone on an Australian rail forum would think of, ra ...

Low floor trams don't mean anything if there is nowhere to get on or off though, they are mostly useless on the 19, 48 and 109 outside the CBD due to the nonexistence of accessible stops along the maj ...

The high floor issue wouldn't be a problem if they weren't the sole trams running on most parts of the network while the Combinos (both D1 and D2) are all wasted on routes which hardly have any access ...
