Z3.124 ran a route 19 service around 2pm. I chased it to Batman, but it terminated at Brunswick Depot and was replaced by either D2.5003 or B2.2117

This is where to post unusual tram sightings. In case you don't know what I mean by an "unusual tram sighting", here are a few things that qualify as unusual

1. A type of tram running on a route it doesn't normally run on (see below for details)
2. Trams testing on an unusual route
3. An unusual amount of a certain tram on a route. Example Route 109 (Box Hill to Port Melbourne) Normally has one or two A2s, so seeing four or more A2s on route 109 is unusual.
4. A tram in a foreign depot (e.g a Z-class at Camberwell depot)

It's actually not that common. It only has been lately because Southbank has been a bit short of available trams (5012 is missing, a few other D2s have spent lengthy periods out of service recently). Also, it it was common, I'd have to add A2 as well, because Southbank has both types of A class.

This morning (24/11/14) at about 0730 I spotted an out of service City Circle liveried W class at the route 12 terminus in Park St, St Kilda. Does anybody know what it would have been doing there? It's the second Monday morning in a row that I have seen a W class Not In Service running on route 12 tracks, Last week it was a regular Green and Cream W running down Clarendon St (south of Whiteman St, where they don't usually run).

Saw a C1 class on route 96 on regular service. This was during the Flinders/spencer street works when Southbank trams were everywhere.

There were a few C1s loaned to Southbank. They were intended for the southern section of 109, however some of them ended up doing 96. 3025 stayed there the week after the works finished and ran route 96 during the week. 3029 also visited Southbank again and ran the first Citadis route 12 last night
