For the first time in 55 plus years tram (light rail) tracks run along George Street in front of the Sydney Town Hall where once a thriving tram system operated until 1963. The small section, laid in recent days, is part of the South Eastern Light Rail line which is scheduled to commence operations in 2019; just ahead of the next State election (no surprise there).
This short film shows trams in George Street in 1906; one hundred and ten years ago.
The new tracks have been laid just ahead of the section where the above film concludes.
Some photos taken this morning;
