Sydney has trams too.

A lot of people may not realise that Sydney has a short light rail line. It is much like the St Kilda and Port Melbourne lines in Melbourne in that much of the line is a former heavy rail line. The line originally opened in 1997, and ran from Central Station to Darling Harbour, and around the other side of Pyrmont to terminate at Wentworth Park. In 2000 the line was extended to its current terminus at Lilyfield. Major attractions served by the line include Darling Harbour, Star City Casino and the Sydney Fish Markets. The line is operated by Metro Transport who also operate the Sydney Monorail. A definitive history of the line can be found at Matthew Geier's Sydney Light Rail web page. There is a technical fact sheet on the system available here.







Sorry about the last photo, I was having a bit of an Alfred Hitchcock moment...;-p
