Sydney, which once had Australia's largest tram system, lost it
But in August/September 1997, a
new light rail service, from Central Station to Ultimo and
Darling Harbour, has commenced operations. It is
operated by low floor
articulated trams based on the ASEA-Brown Boveri Variotram design.
For more information, have a look at the good collection of
Light Rail pictures, by Matthew Geier.
There are also plans to extend this new service into the city proper,
with tracks along Pitt and/or Castlereigh Streets. Sydney will then truly
rejoin the world's civilised cities!

Museum for these pictures.
