Large-diameter threaded rods run from these brackets up through holes drilled through the footpath deck where they are fixed to secure the path.

One short span to go.

Here's a shot of H-Type 367 heading off to the workshops.
Unfortunately I couldn't wait for the departure but in the shot, the trailer was about to reverse into position.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Here are some shots from the first tourist run. Friends on-board said that many people couldn't get on the first rum. http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s264/billd_photo/H351_first_tourist_run_1740_zps6ff22b29.jpg http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s264/billd_photo/H351_first_tourist_run_1746_small_...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I was in Glenelg this morning and luckily had time to grab my camera as H-Type 351 was crossing Brighton Road. I didn't see it again on-track so I assume that it was on its way back to Glengowrie depot. http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s264/billd_photo/Adelaides_H351_1581a_small_zps0f7b0e97.jpg ht...

There's some talk from Goodwood locals that the ARTC track from the tram bridge to the Victoria Street crossing is going to be slewed somewhat further to the west. There's not much room - only a few metres.

21/1/2013 - Early afternoon The temporary ARTC diversion is mainly in place. The northern end was lined up as I was leaving, but welding was yet to be done.

20th Jan 2013. Workers are preparing a diversion to shift the ARTC goods line over to where the Beliar line ran. This will allow excavation works to commence on the western side of the site. As the Belair line is on gauge-convertible concrete sleepers, it appears that for some of the length they've ...
