It started off as just something that interested me, that is doing a bit of research on Melbourne's extinct cable trams, mainly where they ran. It is very interesting because apart from the cable system itself, they also shape the way many of our present trams, and especially, inner suburban buses run. In no book nor online could I find a definitive list of cable trams and the dates they opened, the routes and their closing dates. Via a variety of sources, I did it myself. Some of it may be inaccurate and I not game yet to post it to an online group of experts.
However, I thought Jayne could do something with it in the lost and found section of her blog and lo and behold she has and a fine job she has done too. It is presented in a very interesting manner, as is her wont.
Then I thought, why not do the same for closed electric tram routes? I did that too and both are starting to flow through to Jayne's blog.
Umm, seems to have been a blackout. Black keyboards in the dark are hard. Lucky I can touch type. Well, for most of the keyboard. Thankfully I didn't need a + sign. Ha, I am better than I thought.
