With the NSW Government getting close to returning more trams (light rail) to Sydney I thought I would share with you probably the weirdest tram produced. While most trams were designed to carry the general public, some special-purpose ones were made to carry prisoners to and from gaol, stretchers on hospital trams during the influenza epidemic and breakdown trams to service the tram fleet.
