Adelaide
The Glenelg tram runs from the seaside on the West of Adelaide into the centre of the city at Victoria Sq. Despite the apparent age of the two-car coupled sets, there is a frequent service that appears to be well subscribed by business people, school children and others.

Sydney
Two views of the ADTranz Variotrams
Three views of Loftus Museum
Loftus usually operates at least three trams on operating days. The admission ticket includes unlimited rides on two routes, the 'Museum Line' of approximately 1 km north towards Sutherland, and the 'National Park Line' 2 km south into the Royal National Park. The latter is interesting in that the tram crosses National Highway #1, assisted by bells and lights. Some of the volunteer staff were drivers on the former large Sydney system.
Sydney 'N' class Bogie Maximum Traction Crossbench of 1906. As well as operating regular services this 70 seat model used to serve race meetings where loading was done on the move through the many access points. For further information see www.railpage.org.au/tram/syd-n.html. Higher capacity cars, often operating in multiple units, were the 'O' and 'P' classes. See www.railpage.org.au/tram/syd-o.html and
