The driver of the double-decker tram ran into a new problem today. As shown in an earlier post the crew at the workshop made a test-run past the Golden Fleece petrol station. All good, even the clearance was a bit tight.

A tight fit

Unfortunately the tram has a tendency to swing from side to side. In its hometown Hobart it caused a few derailments and overturns. In Wombat Creek it stayed upright put hanging from the canopy of the petrol station.

The hanging Tram

All tram lines pass the petrol station, so the canopy had to be cut back. Fortunately not a huge job and it is impossible to notice the difference between the original and cut-back version.
