    Trams are good if you use them, and indeed you should if you can when they are reintroduced to Sydney. However, if they are not on dedicated rights of way, the effect of trams on car traffic is substantial and drivers will soon find out why Sydney removed trams. Trams should come before the car, just beware of what's coming.

    The last Sydney tram was withdrawn 25/02/1961 not 1962 I`d say 1956 there is a FE Holden that looks brand new the FE was built between 1956-1958.
