Top read once again, Doug.
Am old enough to remember the trams in Sydney
, which gave a pretty good service, as I recall. The mention of the "lunch tram" not stopping, and passengers alighting and boarding at their leisure also reminded me of the blokes who would stand on the foot board (it run full length of tram, on older models), and step off, well before the tram pulled up at the stop.
Some of the later trams only had doors at each end, and in the centre, and had comfortable padded seats, not the wooden slats like on the older "rattlers".
Were at the Warrumbungles in the early '60's when we discovered some Sydney
trams.... they'd been bought to convert into cabins. As it was raining at the time, we used one for a night or two, prior to their restoration.
