I have just downloaded a video and I would love to upload it here, but there is a clear warning that I must not. Instead I have provided a direct link.
It is a less than a minute and is a silent film of racegoers leaving Sydney's Randwick Racecourse. It could be titled 'how to move eighty thousand people from the races in twenty minutes' as it is said that it was thus.
It is impressive to watch present day Melbourne trams move a large crowd after a big sporting match, such as a football grand final, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. It was even more impressive in days before trams had doors, or had doors that could be open while the tram was moving. But even in the old days, we could never have moved crowds like in this video were moved. These Sydney trams were very open and crowds could flood onto and off them very fast, plus many of them were sets of two trams hooked up together. I'll go for them being mostly coupled O class. Ben?
