I saw the unloading ramp at Victoria Square a few hours ago and is still there. I would have thought that it would have been for 106.

i saw the truck with the ramps today also in Vic Square Smile , figured a new tram was not far away.

Perhaps 106 is on a different ship, eventually docking here at Outer Harbour at a later date ?

The news to this point has been that 106 & 107 have been undergoing pre-delivery checks at Bombardier in Melbourne. Perhaps 106 is not quite ready so they sent 107 first.

There is some support for another one being due in Australia around this time but we're not sure whether it will be delivered here or in Melbourne.

It arrived in Vic Sq shortly after 2am and was on the rails at 3:12.
That's when most of us left.

Could 106 be displayed to YT at Dandenong while it is there and perhaps go for a few demo runs around the network?

so that means we are getting 3 in two nights then, yay. Hopefully this means it will put a stop to my sister asking when her service will be replaced by a New Tram. There wont be very many H sets in service after all these have been placed in service

The one at Mt Barker (106?) will be delivered to Victoria Square tonight.

The empty trailer will then go to Outer Harbour to collect the one on the wharf (108?) which will be delivered tomorrow night leaving the trailer empty again to carry H373 back to Bylands.

So the migration begins.

I rode on a new tram both to and from Glenelg last Monday and it was only then I truly grasped what was happening because it was just not the same.

For those who are interested, here is a list of where the H class are going around the country from the St Kilda Museum Website.


357, 358 - Sydney Tramway Museum
364 - Tramway Museum, St Kilda, SA
368 - W2 568 Group, North Fitzroy Depot, Melbourne
369 - Bendigo Tramways
371, 372 - Perth Electric Tramway Society
373 - Tramway Museum Society of Victoria

As i dont live in Adelaide anymore, can anyone tell me which H's have since departed Glengowrie permanently and where they have gone?

Also, aside from the five millenium refurbs, which of the others are still in traffic?
  409 Minister for Railways

Other than 365 which left in late Novemeber/early December last year, all operational H class are still in service.
