So on Facebook today on the official Yarra Trams page there were some photos of the B1 class farewell tour. Anyone has an idea if they will actually be retired for good soon?

Try an express Box Hill-Camberwell-Richmond on a weekend, I was secretly happy to be on such a super express but there were plenty of pissed passengers on platforms along the way because the expressed ...
