Trams rumbled past the Highrise in their normal manner on christmas day. I checked the timetable and it appeared to be a Sunday timetable plus some very early and very late trams. This is a good service with a tram about every twelve minutes for the routes along St Kilda Road.
We had to pick the Brighton Antique Dealer up at South Yarra Station to take her to our friends in Box Hill on christmas evening. I looked up the train times for her from North Brighton to SY. It was a good service too. I remember when it was a very minimal service on christmas day, with a tram every forty minutes in the morning and thirty minutes in the afternoon and back to forty minutes at night. We are absolutely spoilt.
Did you know London's public transport system shuts down on christmas day? No Tube, no Overground, no buses, no ferries. Nothing except taxis. No wonder the English blob in front of the tv christmas afternoon.
